With this ever-increasing demand, occurrences of a poisoning caused by consumption of toxin-contaminating seafood, either conventional or new products, have been brought to the attention of the general public from time to time. Since more and more concerns have been paid to the quality and safety of these newly explored and aquaculture products, a project “Toxic marine organisms and their toxins (TMO)” aims to improve the awareness of local community on the natural biotoxins in marine organisms and its risks to human health within the Western Pacific Region through the identification of toxic marine organisms and dissemination of relevant scientific information to public. (...) It seeks to bring together researchers from WESTPAC region to share their experiences with Singapore local communities , with objectives to:
1. exchange knowledge and understanding on HABs, toxic marine organisms and their toxins and managements between TMO members and local member state;
2. enhance awareness in dealing with seafood poisonings caused by marine toxins;
3. strengthen regional network and collaboration in marine toxins and HABs research.

Another challenge affecting coastal waters of nations relates to the proliferation of toxin producing microalgae in marine or brackish waters, which can cause massive fish kills, contaminate seafood with toxins, and alter ecosystems in ways that humans perceive as harmful; so called ‘Harmful Algal Blooms’ (HAB). (...) Shellfish and finfish may accumulate algal toxins. Toxins may subsequently be transmitted to humans and through consumption of contaminated seafood become a serious health threat.
