Food Safety: The Risk of Mycotoxin Contamination in Fish

Abstract: Mycotoxins are commonly found in animal feeds, and fish feeds are no exception to this. The need to feed fish in aquaculture with compounded feeds leads to the increasing inclusion of plant-derived feed ingredients that have a higher probability of containing mycotoxins. Since fish appear to be quite sensitive to mycotoxins, further research on mycotoxin toxicity in fish is recommended. Depending on the chemical characteristics of an individual mycotoxin and the biotransformation abilities of the different fis… Show more

“…DON is a mycotoxin primarily produced by Fusarium fungi, occurring mainly in cereal grains used to elaborate feeding for fish. As a result, DON is also known for its high prevalence and incidence in both feed ingredients and feed end-products in Europe [ 33 ]. For instance, high concentration of DON in sea bream feeds due to wheat ingredient has been reported [ 34 ].…”

“…DON is considered to be rapidly metabolized and excreted by fish, thus producing low retention in tissues [ 33 ]. However, DON was evenly distributed in muscle, liver, kidney, skin, and brain of Atlantic salmon fed with contaminated feed for 2 months [ 36 ].…”

“…Unlike Aflatoxin that is susceptible to age and species of the fish, Fumonisin affects all species with low toxicity to the kidneys and liver. According to Pietsch, each species and age of fish has its level of sensitivity, with younger fish being more susceptible (Pietsch, 2019). This could also be explained through their rate of metabolism of FB1 in the liver by the younger species.…”
