Authors(5) :-Hind El MORTAJI, Nabil HANNAOUI, Farida ADLY, Asmaa RADI, hamid TALEB

In this study we performed an ASP analysis in bivalve molluscs of the Dakhla region, especially mussels and oysters. This work was performed between March and June 2015. The sample was conducted in four sites in the Dakhla region, namely Boutalha, Duna Blanca, Puertitto and Oum Labouir. After analysis by HPLC / UV it was shown that the greatest percentage of toxicity of domoic acid (DA) was recorded in June, followed by the months of April and May, while the month of Mars was marked by a low DA toxicity.
