Ciguatera fish poisoning (CFP), also known simply as ciguatera, is a foodborne illness distribution of ciguatera in the tropical Pacific book by eating reef fish whose flesh is contaminated with certain toxins.

Symptoms may include diarrhea, vomiting, numbness, itchiness, sensitivity to hot and cold, dizziness, and weakness.

The onset of symptoms varies with the amount of toxin eaten from half an hour to up to two : Ciguatoxin and maitotoxin within certain reef fish. Ciguatera is widespread in tropical and subtropical waters, usually between the latitudes of 35°N and 35°S; it is particularly common in the Pacific and Indian Oceans and the Caribbean Sea.

The incidence and geographic distribution of ciguatera poisoning are increasing. Ciguatera is a neglected seafood-derived illness induced by ciguatoxins, which are derived from toxin precursors (gambiertoxins) produced by the benthic, marine tropical/subtropical dinoflagellates of the genus Gambierdiscus occurring on coral rubble, sand, and macroalgae.

Ciguatera is gaining global attention primarily due to ciguatera cases occurring in temperate regions through the expanded Cited by: 1.

The distribution of Gambierdiscus is reported globally within tropical waters with sustainability of populations possible in waters between 21 and 31°C where turbulence is not excessive, light levels are.

However, in the Pacific Ocean region, the changing incidence and geographical distribution of ciguatera are relatively well defined only in the Pacific Islands and Australia [9,10,11].

In the coastal countries of East Asia and Southeast Asia (Figure 1), ciguatera should be common as well for several by: Known by the ancient Chinese, reported by Columbus on his first visit to the Caribbean, and accurately described by Pedro de Quiros during his Pacific voyage inciguatera fish poisoning is endemic in all tropical areas and occurs regularly between latitudes 35°S and 35°N.

poverty, global warming, eutrophication) in. Ciguatera is a national concern since tropical and subtropical seafood is a widely distributed product of commerce.

In addition to the public health and product safety problems, ciguatera causes severe economic loss to fisheries and restricts the use of seafood protein in local diets.

Ciguatera is a foodborne illness caused by the ingestion of (otherwise edible) reef fish which have been naturally contaminated by the ciguatoxin – a toxin produced by dinoflagellates (microalgae) and cyanobacteria, mainly of genre Gambierdiscus.

These dinoflagellates adhere to coral, algae and seaweed and are later eaten by bigger fish, who transfer the toxin (via bioaccumulation) up the. ciguatera is highlighted in an article from the Republic of Kiribati. The recent Ciguatera Conference in Papeete, Tahiti was a success.
