Summary: Ciguatera Fish Poirosning (CFP) is a well-known illness in tropical regions brought about by ciguatoxins (CTXs) that are developed by benthic dinoflagellates of the genus Gambierdiscus spp. In Australia, cases of CFP have occured in fish caught in Queensland, Northern territory and New South Wales. 

CTXs are odourless and tasteless meaning that it is difficult to distinguish toxic fish from non-toxic.  Therefore, the objectives of this study were to set up a facility with the ability to determine P-CTX-1B presence in fish, determine whther CTX could be found in Spanish Mackerel from NSW, and if found, examine teh relationship between size and weight of fish detected with the toxin.​​
