Status of shellfish toxicity in Singapore
MetadataShow full item record
No incidence of shellfish toxicity related to red tides has been recorded in Singapore to date. Only one species of dinoflagellate, Cochlodinium catenatum, has been found dominant in some of the phytoplankton blooms reported. Monitoring is regularly carried out in the waters along Johore Strait for paralytic shellfish poisoning on a fortnightly basis.
