Abstract

Massive dinoflagellate blooms in coastal waters are the cause of the phenomenon known as “red tide” (Boyer et al., 1979). Unfortunately, these organisms produce an extremely potent group of tetrahydropurine-based toxins known as the paralytic shellfish poisons (PSP) (Hall et al., 1984). This group of compounds serves as a significant potential risk to humans through the ingestion of shellfish which bioaccumulate the PSP.
