Record-setting Razor Clam Harvest Attributed to Pacific Northwest HAB Forecast

Recreational razor clam harvesters in Long Beach, Washington, set a record for one-day digger trips (17,800 diggers) on April 30, 2017. The record number of trips was triggered by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (WDFW) first-ever decision to increase the bag limit on razor clams when a newly developed forecast warned that a […]

Second ‘Cytobot’ Deployed in Texas Harmful Algae Early Warning Sensor Network

NCCOS-funded investigators from Texas A&M University (TAMU) successfully deployed an Imaging Flow Cytobot (IFCB) on a pier near Freeport, Texas. This is the second cytobot deployed in the Gulf of Mexico as part of an expanding cytobot network to provide early warning of harmful algal blooms (HABs) that impact coastal resources. Blooms of Karenia brevis, […]

Beating the Spread: NCCOS Science Helps Managers NOT Gamble with Invasive Species

A recent publication by NCCOS-funded scientists shows how new invasive species in the Great Lakes are easily dispersed by Lake Michigan and Lake Erie currents. The team, led by Dr. Dima Beletsky of the NOAA Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research at the University of Michigan, modeled dispersal throughout the lakes from nearshore locations, such as […]

NCCOS Responds to Southern California Harmful Algal Bloom Event

Starting late March- early April 2017, researchers, managers, and animal response networks working in Southern California coastal communities noted an increase in wildlife impacts consistent with the onset of a harmful algal bloom (HAB). They observed a large die-off of seabirds in Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Los Angeles Counties and an influx of sea lions […]

NCCOS Shorelines Research Featured on NOAA Chesapeake Bay Website

Managers and policy makers concerned about shoreline hardening in the Mid-Atlantic region can now find pertinent research results summarized in an accessible document. NCCOS supported a multi-partner project conducted from 2009 to 2015 to investigate the ecological effects of hardened shorelines, watershed development and invasive marsh grass species on nearshore ecosystems. The NOAA Chesapeake Bay […]

NCCOS Research Featured in EPA Harmful Algal Blooms Regional Forum

Southwestern states and Pacific Islands are experiencing increasing occurrences of harmful algal blooms in both coastal ocean and freshwater bodies. Recently the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in collaboration with a key regional partner, the California Surface Water Ambient Monitoring Program, convened a forum for federal, state, tribal and local agencies, lake managers, and water […]
