- ... The native Anguilla australis (shortfin eel) is a culturally significant species for indigenous Māori populations of New Zealand. At Lake Forsyth/Te Wairewa (Canterbury), local Māori have depended on A. australis as a source of mahinga kai (traditional food) for centuries. This lake experiences blooms of Nodularia spumigena and the associated hepatotoxin nodularin has been detected in water sample ...

- ... Nodularia spumigena is one of the dominant toxic cyanobacteria which produce blooms in the Baltic Sea, a brackish water body, particularly in late summer. Nodularia spp. are known to produce hepatotoxic nodularins (NODs) and other bioactive peptides such as spumigins and nodulopeptins. In a recent study, three new nodulopeptins with a molecular weight of 899, 901 and 917 Da were characterized from ...
