Ciguatera is a food poisoning linked to the consumption of fish and marine invertebrates contaminated by neurotoxins produced by a microscopic algae.

Considered the most widespread seafood poisoning worldwide, it affects hundreds of thousands of people each year.

Under the influence of climate change, the ciguatera environmental phenomenon, which hitherto concerned the tropical and intertropical regions of the Pacific, the Caribbean and the Indian Ocean, tends to globalize.

This website, administered by the Marine Biotoxins Laboratory of the Louis Malardé Institute, pioneer in Ciguatera research, aims to inform and raise awareness among the general public and health professionals about this condition, which still remains in many ways a scientific and medical enigma.
