Biotoxins in aquatic environments impact human and animal health globally. There are many toxin families; the microcystins, produced by freshwater cyanobacteria, represent a group of particular relevance. These toxins are hepatotoxic and can cause tumor formation; they have multiple exposure routes, including drinking water and recreational activities. Due to the high variety of microcystin analogs and their potency, it is important to monitor these toxins in freshwater environments where human exposure is likely. Santa María del Oro, a mesotrophic lake in Nayarit, Mexico, annually attracts thousands of tourists who perform ecotourism and recreational activities. However, large annual cyanobacterial blooms occur, producing microcystins. This paper describes this toxic threat and the microcystin profiles. View this paper
