Abstract: Outbreaks of paralytic shellfish poisoning and simultaneous red
tides (Pyrodinium bahamense Plate) in the Port Moresby district during 1972 are recorded.
Bioassays of various bivalve shellfish during and subsequent to the red tide
"season" revealed different retention times of toxin in different species. Samples of
the red tide elicited the same paralytic poisoning effects in mice as did toxic shellfish
