Trusted: edited by a thematic editorDistribution A. poporum has presently been found in European (North Sea) and East Asian (Korea, China) waters, but probably occurs worldwide (Gu et al. 2013). [details]

Trusted: edited by a thematic editorHarmful effect A.poporum produces azaspiracid toxins, causing AZP (azaspiracid shellfish poisoning) the European strains were originally reported top be non-toxic, bit a new type of azaspiracid was subesquently found in both European and Asian strains (Krock et al. 2012). Chinese strains may form 0-3 different types of AZA, including toxic AZA-2 (Gu et al. 2013. AZA-2 was found in sponges in the Sea of Japan (Ueoka et al. 2009),indicating that AZAs can be expected to accumulate not only in mussels but also in other marine animals. Presently no poisonings have been reported. [details]
