Among the toxins produced by cyanobacteria, the microcystins have been the most commonly found in blooms around the world, and they are produced by several cyanobacterial genera such as Microcystis, Anabaena, Nodularia, Oscillatoria, Nostoc, Cylindrospermopsis, Aphanizomenon, Planktothrix, Anabaenopsis, Synechocystis, Lyngbya, and others (Siqueira & Oliveira-Filho, 2005; Bortoli & Pinto, 2015).
