<jats:title>ABSTRACT</jats:title><jats:p>Scombrotoxin fish poisoning (SFP) remains the main contributor of fish poisoning incidents in the United States, despite efforts to control its spread.

We examined the gills, skin, and anal vents of yellowfin (<jats:italic>n</jats:italic>= 3), skipjack (<jats:italic>n</jats:italic>= 1), and albacore (<jats:italic>n</jats:italic>= 6) tuna for the presence of indigenous HPB. Thirteen HPB strains were isolated from the anal vent samples from albacore (<jats:italic>n</jats:italic>= 3) and yellowfin...
