Abstract : Natural biotoxins (phycotoxins) are planktonic algae products which they produce to defence against predators. Bivalve shellfish can acummulate large quantities of biotoxins by water filtration. In humans these toxins can cause six syndromes: ASP, AZP, DSP, NSP, PSP and VSP. Detection of biotoxins is carried on HPLC (High- Performance Liquid Chromatography) with different detectors. In the coastal waters of Montenegro biotoxins monitoring started in 2014, but IMB working team performs regular monthly monitoring of toxic and potentially toxic algae species for years. In neighboring countries, primary Croatia, permanent marine biotoxins monitoring is performed per years as well as toxic algae species
