If you fully cook live scallops, can their natural toxin still cause paralytic shellfish poisoning?

Aliza Green's The Fishmonger's Apprentice : The Expert's Guide to Selecting, Preparing, and Cooking a World of Seafood, Taught by the Masters. p 174.

Do not eat the organs of a crab, including the creamy-textured "butter" (the pancreas) of Dungeness crab as they may contain a natural toxin, also occasionally found in live scallops, that can result in paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP). Where or when the toxin is found is unpredictable, but high levels have been found in the crab population, especially those from Alaska.
