Field validation of the Neogen rapid screening paralytic shellfish toxin test kit for abalone foot (2021)$108,189
Description
This project will conduct a risk profile for paralytic shellfish toxin (PST) accumulation in urchins, addressing the following questions:1.What is the risk of paralytic shellfish toxin accumulation in Heliocidaris erythrogramma and Centrostephanus rodgersii on the east coast of Tasmania as a result of Alexandrium catenella blooms?2.If risk management is necessary, what are suitable options, and what are the knowledge gaps?
