Lviv Politechnic Publishing House
This paper will update some information related to cyanotoxins detected in lake Torment, a recreational freshwater body in Nova Scotia, Canada. The goal of our paper is to present the detected toxins released by Toxic Algal Blooms and introducing the method of measurement by using the ELISA test. The results can show a very potential approach of toxin detection which could be applied in Ukraine or other countries where cyanotoxin detection in fresh and marine water ecosystems are still not well developed.
