Researchers Issue Outlook for a Significant New England ‘Red Tide’ in 2010

The New England shellfish industry faces a potential threat this spring and summer as scientists from the NCCOS-funded Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms (ECOHAB) Gulf of Maine Toxicity (GOMTOX) project have observed indicators of a significant regional bloom of a toxic alga that causes ‘red tides.’ Researchers have issued an outlook indicating that a large bloom of Alexandrium is likely in the spring of 2010.
