Projects

Rapid Detection of Harmful Algae

To provide coastal managers with the early warning needed to implement timely and effective mitigation strategies to reduce a harmful algal bloom’s negative impacts, we are producing rapid, easy-to-use kits ...

Rapid, Portable, Multiplexed Detection of Harmful ...

We are expanding algal toxin testing to include tests for saxitoxins and anatoxin-a. The new tool will give water managers and community-based monitoring networks the ability to rapidly quantify these ...

Resolving the Effects of Resource Availability, Pr...

Aureococcus anophagefferens causes brown tides that have severely impacted fisheries, seagrass beds, and aquaculture in mid-Atlantic US coastal waters for three decades. The recent sequencing of the Aureococcus genome, combined ...

Robotic, Underwater Sensor for Harmful Algal Bloom...

We developed a device to provide resource managers and public-health officials with valuable, real-time data on harmful algal bloom (HAB) toxicity. This robotic, underwater sensor provides fast and accurate measurements ...

Seasonal Forecasting of Karenia brevis Red Tide Bl...

This project is developing modeling tools to improve short term and seasonal predictions of toxic red tide Karenia brevis blooms in the Gulf of Mexico West Florida Shelf. The project ...

Sharing Simple and Fast Algal Toxin Detection Test...

Toxins produced by harmful algae accumulate in shellfish, causing human illness and marine animal mortalities. We have developed a rapid, cost-effective test that measures algal toxins in shellfish to protect ...

Shellfish Killers: An Optimized Early Warning Prog...

We are collecting data to understand the impacts of shellfish-killing algae and their toxins on aquaculture farms and wild populations and to develop a warning system for growers and managers ...

Strengthening Early Warning and Forecasts of Domoi...

In the Pacific Northwest (PNW), blooms of Pseudo-nitzschia that produce domoic acid (DA) are a significant human health threat and extremely costly to coastal communities. This project improves early warnings ...

The Columbia River Plume and Harmful Algal Blooms ...

We identified the oceanographic causes and transport routes for the harmful alga Pseudo-nitzschia in the offshore waters of the Pacific Northwest and improved predictability of the arrival of harmful algal ...

Research Paper Deemed One of Special Significance ...

A research paper, supported in part by NCCOS, measuring the metabolic cost to a red tide dinoflagellate to defend itself against predation (consumption) has been recommended by the prestigious Faculty ...

NOAA Lake Erie Harmful Algal Bloom Early Season Pr...

Western Lake Erie is expected to experience a lower than average harmful algal bloom (HAB) this summer, according to the first 2021 Lake Erie Harmful Algal Bloom Early Season Projection ...

Low, Gulf-Wide Bloom Predicted for Gulf of Maine R...

Researchers with NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) are expecting a low, gulf-wide red tide for the Gulf of Maine this spring and summer, continuing the pattern of ...

Ecosystem Approach to Everglades Water Flow Needed...

A new study partially funded by the NCCOS Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms (ECOHAB) Program describes the various stressors that have impacted South Florida ecosystems over the last ...

Environmental Sample Processor Enhances Ocean Sens...

In a study published recently in the Journal of Marine Science and Engineering, NCCOS and Northwest Fisheries Science Center researchers, along with partners at the University of Washington (UW), and ...

Phytoplankton Monitoring Network: 20 Years of Citi...

The National Phytoplankton Monitoring Network (PMN) is celebrating 20 years of improving harmful algal bloom (HAB) research through its citizen science monitoring efforts. The program has supported a national community-based ...

HAB Bulletin Supports Quinault Tribal Access to Ra...

On April 12, 2021, the Quinault Indian Nation welcomed tribal razor clam diggers to Mocrocks Beach, Washington. This is the first time tribal members have been able to access this ...

Data & Publications

The influence of anthropogenic nitrogen loading and meteorological conditions on the dynamics and toxicity of Alexandrium fundyense blooms in a New York (USA) estuary

The goal of this two-year study was to explore the role of nutrients and climatic conditions in promoting reoccurring Alexandrium fundyense blooms in the Northport-Huntington Bay complex, NY, USA. A bloom in 2007 was short and small (3 weeks, 103 ...

Two new karlotoxins found in Karlodinium veneficum (strain GM2) from the East China Sea

The dinoflagellate Karlodinium veneficum is a harmful algal bloom species with a worldwide distribution. This small athecate dinoflagellate makes a family of polyketide toxins that are hemolytic, cytotoxic and ichthyotoxic. The first chemical structure for karlotoxins from East China Sea ...

Zooplankton community grazing impact on a bloom of Alexandrium fundyense in the Gulf of Maine

Shipboard grazing experiments were conducted in the Gulf of Maine and on Georges Bank during of June 2006 to estimate zooplankton community grazing impact on a natural bloom of the toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium fundyense. Surface seawater samples containing natural populations ...
