    Abstract

    The earliest European explorers in the Pacific have written about the occurrence of toxic fish in the islands they visited. In the last 25 or so years scientists have begun to study and understand more about the variety of toxins that exist. This research has been hampered by the extreme toxicity and thus low concentrations of the toxins in the relevant marine organisms.
