Dear subscribers, 

I am looking for any information (online or not) documenting ciguatera  
cases in the Caribbean during the last couple decades.  I am writing my  
M.S. thesis paper on the distribution of ciguatera in Florida and the  
Caribbean region.  I have plenty of case studies and first-hand accounts,  
but I am looking for trends or statistics of reported cases from various  
Caribbean locations.  The CDC takes reports and has published several  
cases in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, but I don't believe they  
keep statistics since ciguatera is not really a reportable disease, but a  
biotoxin poisoning.   

If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would be very grateful.   
You can respond to me personally if you wish. 

Thank you,
