Toxic effects of harmful algal blooms on finfish and shellfish
TLDR
This chapter provides an updated account of HAB species, and several aquatic organisms affected by toxic species are highlighted because of their economic importance in mariculture.
Impacts of harmful algal blooms on shellfisheries aquaculture
Abstract: The impacts of harmful algal species on shellfish aquaculture were reviewed by Shumway (1990) and, while there were some specific studies available, much of the information was collated
Marine chemical ecology
TLDR
This review covers the recent marine chemical ecology literature for benthic cyanobacteria, macroalgae, sponges, octocorals, molluscs, other benthics invertebrates, fish and seabirds.
Algal Toxins in Pond Aquaculture
Algal toxins are organic molecules produced by a variety of algae in marine, brackish and fresh waters, as well as on wet soils (Falconer, 1993). They are a problem in aquaculture when they are
Harmful Algal Blooms
Harmful algal blooms (HABs) pose threats to the environment, public health, and a variety of commercial interests and industries. A single bloom can lead to devastating outcomes, including large

Harmful algal blooms
Introduction Healthy fresh and saltwater environments naturally contain some algae, but excess algae growth can negatively impact water, food, and air quality. Red tides, one type of harmful algal
A Review of the Effects of Algal Blooms on Shellfish and Aquaculture
TLDR
The means by which harvesters, managers, and industry cope with the problems associated with toxic algal blooms are discussed, and recommendations for the most efficient and successful utilization of resources in the face of environmental instability are made.
The Recent Blue-Green Algal Blooms of Long Lake, Washington
In 1976 and 1977, toxic blooms of Anabaena flos-aquae occurred in the upper end of Long Lake, Washington, an impoundment of the Spokane River downstream from the city of Spokane. A non-toxic bloom of
Physiological ecology of toxic aquatic cyanobacteria
TLDR
Toxin production may simply be a mechanism for shunting excess metabolites during periods of environmental stress and may be metabolically linked to the production of other secondary metabolites, including those causing taste and odour problems.
Effects of toxic and non-toxic cyanobacteria on grazing, zooplanktivory and survival of the mysid shrimp Mysis mixta.
TLDR
The mysid shrimp M. mixta showed normal functional responses; decreasing clearance rates at increasing concentrations of cyanobacteria, and could not demonstrate increased mortality in a 7-week experiment where mysids were exposed to high concentrations of toxic N. spumigena.
Copepod interactions with toxic and non-toxic cyanobacteria from the Gulf of Finland
TLDR
Recurrent blooms of toxic cyanobacteria dominate surface waters of the western Gulf of Finland in late summer, overlapping peak densities of two copepods, Acartia bifilosa and Eurvtemora affinis, which possess morphological and toxic properties that might affect planktic herbivory and impact secondary production.
The Impact of Toxic Algae on Scallop Culture and Fisheries
TLDR
Toxins are not distributed evenly throughout the scallop tissues—more toxin is usually concentrated in the mantle and digestive gland; some scallops tissues, e.g., digestive glands and mantles, remain highly toxic throughout the year; and toxicity varies considerably between individual animals.
Toxic cyanobacteria in some finnish lakes
TLDR
Toxicity in Lake Tuusulanjarvi fluctuated between sampling intervals whereas Lake Saaskjarvi showed periodic toxicity, i.e., neurotoxicity caused by anatoxin-a occurred at times of A. circinalis dominance, which proved to be fatal for surrounding livestock.
