Brevetoxins (PbTx) are a class of cyclic polyether compounds produced by certain algae such as Karenia brevis. K. brevis can produce Brevetoxins in large quantities during an algae bloom which then pose a major health threat and are important to monitor and mitigate. Brevetoxins are the causative agent of Neurotoxic Shellfish Poisoning (NSP).
