The original assay reported was a RIA (Hokama et al. 1977, and later work indicated a moderate correlation be­ tween the RIA procedure and a mouse bioassay on a number of suspected ciguatoxic fish (Kimura et al. 1982). Following the development of the RIA procedure, an ELISA technique was described by the same group (Hokama et al. 1984). In this technique, a small portion of the suspect fish tissue was placed directly in the well of a microtiter plate for treatment with the ELISA reagents. Results from suspect contaminated fish and purified Ciguatoxin gave a promising correlation between the level of toxin and the response of the assay.
