This research was conducted to clarify whether plankton as the primary food source and fish in Inner Ambon Bay TAD could accumulate saxitoxin in PSP Paralylic Shellfish Poisoning so the information acquired from this research could be used as a basic reference on oceanography studies especially in Ambon Bay environmental toxicology environmental bioremediation and a reference on Ambon Bay sustainable water management concept formulation. The research was conducted in East season June-August 2015 and West season December 2015 February 2016. The method used was descriptive method in situ sampling and enumeration. Hydro-oceanography parameters measured were temperature salinity DO Dissolved Oxygen pH phosphate nitrate and transparency. Dinoflagellate abundance in east season is higher than in west season. It is followed with abundance of dinoflagellates in anchovy fish Stolephorus heterolobus gizzard so saxitoxin level in the fish is also higher. Dinoflagellates species found Alexandrium Protoperidinium Genyoulax and Dynophysis. ELISA test result on saxitoxin level in anchovy fish was 12.415 26956g east season and 5.1326956g west season the concentration was still below saxitoxin toleration level 80 26956g.
