Although bivalves that are actively feeding on nontoxic algae are likely to exhibit faster depuration (Bricelj & Shumway 1998), when mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis, contaminated with PSP toxin, okadaic acid, were transferred to a toxin-free zone the rate of depuration did not decrease significantly (Blanco et al.
