Abstract:Toxicity studies of various bivalves at Port Moresby were carried
out by mouse bioassay. Crassostrea echinata was found to lose paralytic shellfish poison
after 3 weeks in a closed seawater system, although toxin is retained for a much
longer period in vivo. Four bivalve species tested were as toxic at 10 meters depth as
they were at 2 meters. Toxin was not distributed evenly through the tissues of
bivalves investigated.
