This reports the findings of the toxin-producing phytoplankton moniroting programme in Scottish coastal waters throughout the period April 2003 to March 2004 in fulfilment of the EU Shellfish Hygiene Directive 91/442/EEC.
Twenty-three coastal sites were selected to participate in the monitoring programme. Sample collectors were requested to supply seawater samples for light microscope (LM) analysis on a weekly basis from April to October and monthly from November to March. The sample return rate from coastal sites varied from 3 to 100%. An additional 232 samples were collected from offshore sites as directed by Food Standards Agency Scotland (FSAS). In total 738 LM samples (506 coastal and 232 offshore) were analysed from coastal and offshore sites.
