Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Many toxins are produced in aquatic organisms ranging from cyanobacteria, to dinoflagellates, algae and other organisms both of freshwater and marine origin. As natural compounds, these toxins have not been thought of as environmental pollutants but they do pose toxic threats to other aquatic life-forms and to human health and they can be bioaccumulated and biotransformed in target organisms resulting in a more complicated toxic threat. This is exemplified by the paralytic shellfish poisoning of humans on eating shellfish contaminated by dinoflagellate toxins arising from algal “blooms”. Such blooms are occurring more often and more severely worldwide with serious implications for aquaculture, mariculture, environmental and human health. This special issue deals with structure, analysis, potential as novel drugs, toxic effects, biotransformation/accumulation and detoxification and environmental implications of toxins from aquatic organisms.
