Information -Fish histamine poisoning

Food Authority NSW

Histamine fish poisoning (or Scombroid poisoning) is a type of food poisoning caused by elevated levels of histamine being present in the fish.

Naturally occurring bacteria in fish produce an enzyme which converts histidine in the fish to histamine.

Histamine fish poisoning usually occurs in certain species of fish, such as tuna, sardines, mackerel, swordfish and marlin.
