Excerpt
Excerpt: Throughout the world's coastal oceans, observations of harmful algal blooms (HABs) are being reported with increasing frequency. Often, these events are accompanied by severe impacts to coastal resources, local economies, and public health. Harmful algal blooms--accumulations of microscopic species of algae or the larger, multi-cellular species--appear to be more devastating than ever before, and may be increasing over time. Some species recur in the same geographic regions each year, while others are episodic, leading to the unexpected deaths of local fish, shellfish, mammals, and birds. While the impacts appear to be both obvious and on the rise, only about 50 of the thousands of known algal species actually produce toxins. Some of these toxins have direct and deleterious effects on local plants and animals; others have indirect affects on organisms by changing local environmental conditions.
