Today, ANSES is publishing an opinion on the health risks associated with the presence of cyanobacteria and their toxins in recreational water, drinking water and water intended for fishing. This work has been used to update the list of toxin-producing cyanobacteria in fresh water that pose a threat to humans. To harmonise and improve water surveillance, quality monitoring and analysis activities, the Agency is offering fact sheets to aid management of the cyanotoxin risk for the various water uses.
