Domoic acid is a naturally occurring marine biotoxin that may be produced during “blooms” of some species of algae. Scientists are still investigating when, how, and why this happens.
Some species, such as razor clams, are very slow to remove domoic acid from their tissues. These species may still have high levels of domoic acid long after other species are safe to eat.
