(i)

SHELLFISH POISONING includes four (4) syndromes that share some common features and are primarily associated with bivalve molluscs (such as mussels , clams , oysters and scallops .) These shellfish are filter feeders and, therefore, accumulate toxins produced by microscopic algae , such as cyanobacteria , diatoms and dinoflagellates .
