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

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, and are a problem in aquaculture when they are produced in sufficient quantities to kill cultured organisms, decrease feeding and growth rates, cause food safety issues, or adversely affect the quality of the product.

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

A Review of the Effects of Algal Blooms on Shellfish and Aquaculture

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.

Physiological ecology of toxic aquatic cyanobacteria

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.

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

Copepod interactions with toxic and non-toxic cyanobacteria from the Gulf of Finland

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

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

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.
