Description 
Summary

The data set concerns the DSP toxicity levels in cultured mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) in relation to the presence of potentially toxic dinoflagellates. The reliability corresponds to the precision of the Yasumoto's bioassay. Data are collected monthly at four coastal stations; during emergency periods, data are collected bimonthly or weekly. The toxicity data are put in correlation with the algal counts obtained at the same stations.
