Toxin Sensor off Washington Coast Provides Early Warning

A sensor for the algal neurotoxin domoic acid (DA), developed by NCCOS scientists, was deployed last week off the Washington coast on an Environmental Sample Processor (ESP). Designed by the Monterey Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) and known as “ESPfriday,” the processor is operated by the Northwest Fisheries Science Center (NWFSC). The DA sensor, along with harmful […]
