Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
While the most common harmful algal bloom (HAB) toxins have been widely reported and explored, a huge range of “emerging toxins” constitute a substantial gap in our understanding. These “emerging toxins” are defined as (i) toxins that appear in waters and seafood where they were previously absent, (ii) non-regulated known toxins, which are considered to be of concern but require additional toxicological evidence before establishing further regulations, and (iii) recently discovered toxins. The lack of occurrence data makes it difficult to fully comprehend the potential impacts of these toxins. Therefore, the purpose of this Special Issue is to encourage the publication of research articles devoted to the detection and quantification of emerging toxins in commercially important shellfish species.
