Abstract

Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB) are a growing problem in the world. The dinoflagellate Alexandrium, with 12 species recorded from the Mediterranean Sea, is one of the most important genera causing HAB. Some Alexandrium species produce potent Saxitoxins that may enter the food web through filter feeding mollusks, and cause intoxications in humans. Alexandrium may also produce massive blooms in confined areas like beaches or harbours, that, even when non toxic, affect tourism, an important industry in the Mediterranean.
