Scientists Work on New Methods to Prevent and Control Harmful Algal Blooms Impacting Atlantic Coastal Communities
Harmful algal blooms (HABs) pose a significant threat to humans, animals and the coastal environment. A newly initiated CSCOR HAB Program called Prevention, Control and Mitigation of Harmful Algal Blooms (PCMHAB) has been awarded $1M for three new projects that will develop proactive solutions to directly manage toxic blooms.
The best of these methods will be transitioned into new coastal resource management strategies. One of the three projects will test a strategy to reduce or possibly eliminate toxic blooms of the New England
