Abstract: Harmful algal blooms (HAB) are a world-wide problem. The study of the biology and ecophysiology of some HAB species has been well documented for over a century. However, it is still uncertain about the controlling mechanisms of blooming and toxin production. In this study, a number of HAB species were selected in the preliminary study for Artemia bioassay for toxin production and finally, Karenia brevis isolated from U.S. was selected for further analysis. Various techniques including, such as genomic molecular study of DNA sequences, are not good enough to conclude the cause of HAB. The objective of this study is to conduct a proteomics approach to identify some important proteins involved in toxin production. Some proteins found on day 4 of KBUS culture were expected to associate with the lag phase of population growth and possibly have an essential role in toxin production by K.brevis.
