This study describes the stability of gonyautoxins stored at different temperatures in acidic solution. The stability was analysed by high performance liquid chromatography. The experiments demonstrated that gonyautoxin 6 is the most unstable toxin in any condition, and at temperatures lower than 4 C there is no important change in the other toxins in the first year of storage. The results indicate that these toxins can be safely stored in acidic conditions at low temperatures.
