Last week, our scientists set sail on an annual research cruise to support the Gulf of Maine #redtide forecast. While onboard, the crew will collect sediment samples to test for Alexandrium catenella cysts, a species that can produce neurotoxins that cause Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP) in human consumers. 

Stay tuned to follow their journey.  Learn more about the forecast: https://coastalscience.noaa.gov/science-areas/habs/hab-forecasts/gulf-of-maine-alexandrium-catenella-predictive-models/
