    Harmful algal blooms: A climate change co-stressor in marine and freshwater ecosystems - Open access January Andrew W. Griffith | Christopher J. Gobler.   Harmful algal blooms are one of the consequences of the human impact on aquatic ecosystems, particularly the process of eutrophication. They can cause a variety of deleterious effects, including the poisoning of fish and shellfish, habitat disruptions for many organisms, water discolouration, beach fouling, and even toxic effects for humans.

    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) - blooms that cause fish kills, contaminate seafood with toxins, or cause human or ecological health impacts and harm to local economies - are occurring more often, in more places and lasting longer than in past decades. Harmful Algal Blooms. Phytoplankton (single-celled microscopic algae) exist at the base of the food chain in most freshwater and marine ecosystems. They capture solar energy and provide food to aquatic animals. There are hundreds of varieties of these microorganisms, and most are harmless. But certain forms can turn toxic if conditions are right. phytoplankton, diatoms and dinoflagellates, produce harmful toxins in marine waters. Harmful algal blooms have been documented along the coastlines of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and the Gulf of Mexico. In freshwater, the most common harmful algal bloom is caused by cyanobacteria, otherwise known as blue-green algae.

    Blooms of the single cell algae known as phytoplankton are sometimes called red tides, which have been recognized since biblical times. The phytoplankton may become so numerous that they cause the water to become discolored (i.e., red, reddish . Toxic Marine Algal Blooms. One species of phytoplankton has made a strong appearance in Long Island waters, Alexandrium spp. Alexandrium spp. has been present in Long Island waters since the s and made its first harmful bloom on Long Island in , causing large shellfishing closures in Northport and Huntington Harbors in the Town of Huntington (Northwest Suffolk . Marine harmful algal blooms (HABs) are mostly caused by single celled algae called phytoplankton.

Harmful algae are a small subset of species that negatively affect human, animal, and.
