Cyanobacteria and cyanotoxins in drinking-water

Cyanobacteria or blue-green algae grow in eutrophic (nutrient-rich) freshwaters. Some strains of cyanobacteria produce one or more of a range of toxins that can be dangerous to humans and wildlife. Human health concern relates primarily to drinking-water and to recreational water exposure. Some cyanobacteria produce floating "scums" that concentrate cells and any toxins present.
