Seasonality of Shellfish Poisoning
This figure appears in the Climate Change Impacts on the United States: The Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change: Foundation Report report.
Monthly distribution of oyster-associated Vibrio vulnificus illness (or shellfish poisoning) and deaths occurring in Florida from 1981-1994. Over the 14-year period, higher numbers of cases occur during summer. Monitoring in Florida shows a statistically significant assocation between concentrations of this pathogen in estuaries and temperature and salinity, the latter being affected by rainfall and runoff.
