Toxic species in French Polynesia
 Make a report















Welcome to Ciguatera Online !


Each year, hundreds of thousands individuals are affected by Ciguatera Fish Poisoning (CFP). For some, this poisoning related to the consumption of toxic fish or seafood, will only last for a few days, for others, it will last for years…


This food borne illness, which concerned until recently only tropical and inter-tropical coral regions of the Pacific, Caribbean and Indian Ocean, tends to spread worldwide. In many ways, it remains a scientific and medical enigma.


This website provides a wide range of information on CFP, but also latest news about research improvement, downloadable information documents, links concerning CFP and gives you the opportunity to share your experience and ask questions. You will also find a toxic fish and fishing areas interactive map, which you can consult and implement.





 Ciguatera-online is also providing a new generation of epidemiological surveillance tool that healthcare professionals and private individuals could use to anonymously report one or multiple CFP events.

Collected information will make it possible to monitor CFP phenomenon and to accumulate relevant knowledge for a better understanding of the biological mechanisms involved.
