Ciguatera fish poisoning

Ciguatera fish poisoning is a human illness cause by eating tropical and subtropical fish that are contaminated with ciguatoxins, which are produced by tiny microalgae of the genus Gambierdiscus. Changes in weather patterns, environmental conditions and range extension of marine species have the potential to cause ciguatera fish poisoning to appear in new areas. National and international research is currently underway to better understand the issue.
