The microcystins are a large group of toxic cyclic heptapeptides produced by cyanobacteria such as Microcystis and Planktothrix spp. Many freshwater habitats experience regular cyanobacterial blooms caused by microcystin-producing Planktothrix spp. In Lake Steinsfjorden, Norway, noble crayfish (Astacus astacus) harvested for human consumption are exposed to the microcystins from the surrounding water and through their diet. What is the relationship between microcystins in the water and in the crayfish? What is the impact of microcystins on noble crayfish health? Is there a food safety concern, and are there steps that might be used to mitigate it? This study addresses these important questions. View this paper.
