1983). Generally, between three and 12 of the different toxins are present in any given shellfish sample and constitute the "toxin profile" of the shellfish. The toxin profile is dependent on the strain of dinoflagellate, the shellfish species and the time between exposure to the toxins and sampling. The toxin profile can be influenced by metabolic conversion or selective retention of the toxins in the shellfish following ingestion. This, coupled with the various toxin profiles in the different dinoflagellate strains, makes it very difficult to predict which toxins will be present in a particular shellfish sample and makes it difficult for the analyst charged with shellfish toxicity determina­ tions.
