The number of studies conducted per species,The variety of farmed species raised in very distinct environments and with distinct characteristics, makes almost impossible to transpose results from one specie to another, even if they are quite close phylogenetic speaking, andThe fact that most research looks at the effect of a single mycotoxin, whereas hundreds of distinct mycotoxins and metabolites have been identified.Various fungi produce mycotoxins during the production and storage of crops, and mycotoxins tend to occur in groups. Some mycotoxins are known to demonstrate synergistic effects, meaning that they aggravate the harm to animals even at low levels. It’s these more realistic scenarios where further research is needed.”
