Other information

Ciguatera poisoning is the most frequently reported seafood safety related illness in Australia. However, the true incidence of this food-borne illness appears to be much higher, with only < 20% of cases thought to be reported. This survey of recreational fishers aimed to raise awareness of the issue in the community. This work aligns with the aims of the National Ciguatera Research Strategy and forms part of SafeFish’s ongoing efforts to raise awareness of ciguatera poisoning in Australia.
