commercial fishing lose income and also the charter boat are affected receiving numerous cancellations even if the waters are not affected by the harmful algae blooms.The death rate of fishes during red tides has extended extreme numbers.However those numbers seem extremes it is the realities of “red tide.Estimates that are more than 100 tons of fish can be killed during “red tides” in a single day.”Toxin blooms of dinoflagellates” fall in three categories: first blooms that kill fish but few vertebrates;second blooms that kill primarily invertebrates;last blooms that kill few marine organisms but the toxins are concentrated within the siphons,digestive glands or mantle cavities of filter feeding bivalve mollusc such as oysters,clams and escallops causing Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning(psp).Red tides have affected humans too.The impact is both economical and medical.There’s five different types of poisoning. The first one is (PSP or paralytic shellfish poisoning) it caused by the production of “saxitoxin” by the “alexandrium” species.It can concentrate in shellfish and when eaten affects the nervous systems and can cause muscle paralysis and high levels of PSP may lead to death.It symptoms include tingling of lips and tongue which mat begin within minutes of eating toxic shellfish may take around thirty minutes to develop.It may progress also to tingling of fingers and toes and then loss of control of arms and legs followed by difficulty in breathing.Some people experience a sense of floating.iting,nausea and cramps.It’s general.Next the (ASP or Amnesic shellfish poisoning) it caused by “domoic acid” producing benthic algae and planktonic including pseudo nitzchia pungens,pseudo nitzchia

multiseries and amphora coffaeformis.It can be found in blue mussels and soft shell clams caused by pseudo nitzchia delicatissima.It neurological and gastric symptoms include dizziness,memory loss and disorientation.Next the (DSP or diarrhetic shellfish poisoning) it caused by the “dinophysis”.It symptoms include diarrhea,abdominal pain,vomitting,cramps and nausea.PSP and ASP are both that effect in nervious system.Next the (CFP or Ciguatera fish poisoning) it symptoms are temperature reversal,hallucinations,skin irritations,muscular and join pain.Last the (NSP or Neurotoxin shellfish poisoning) It symptoms are tingling of limbs,dizziness and muscle aches.Scaloops,oysters,clams and mussels are entire associated with (NSP).Action of the wave can released the algae toxins in the direction of the air causing problems of the respiratory among people closer to the shoreline specifically those with emphysema, asthma and other illnesses in respiratory.Becoming defiled with those toxins can be “deadly” unless you response necessity precautions. LITERATURE REVIEW Red tide is a toxic dinoflagellate, is the leading cause of ‘red tide’ algal blooms in the Philippines. Current monitoring practices do not address the need for an early warning system, due to the high costs and expertise required in the implementation of available methods. The
