MetadataShow full item record
The occurrence of toxic red tides and paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) have become more frequent in Southeast Asian waters in recent years. A consultative meeting was organised by the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada on 11-14 September 1984 to review the status of shellfish toxicity in Southeast Asia and discuss ways and means for its improved study and control. It was attended by 28 officials and researchers from Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand, including participants from the International Center for Living Aquatic Resource Management, IDRC and SEAFDEC. This volume resulted from the meeting and provides, for the first time, a review of past problems and current research on the subject. It includes edited papers, recommendations and conclusions of the meeting. The papers describe the background related to PSP and red tide in the region as well as the measures taken to protect consumers. Also included are resource papers outlining conditions in Canada and Japan and the protective measures which have been adopted by the two countries.
