  1. Transport of toxic dinoflagellate cysts via ship's ballast water.

    Article - En anglais

    Toxic dinoflagellate species that are not endemic to an area can be inadvertently introduced when their cysts are discharged with the ballast tank sediments of bulk container ships.

    These species, which can affect fish- and shellfish-farms, pose a serious threat to public health and aquaculture.

    The introduction of new Australian quarantine measures is discussed; however, the implications of this potential spreading of toxic algae are global.
