Fast Tool to Detect Toxic Shellfish

The marine food source and livelihood of tribes and communities along the Pacific coast are threatened by Pseudo-nitzschia blooms that produce domoic acid, a potent neurotoxin. To provide remote communities ...

Life and Death of a Karenia Bloom in the Western G...

Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are increasing in frequency and pose a threat to human and environmental health. Blooms of Karenia brevis occur nearly annually along the Florida coast which has ...

Mechanism of Harmful Algal Bloom Initiation in the...

Blooms of the toxic dinoflagellate, Karenia brevis, threaten human and ecosystem health and local economies around the Gulf of Mexico. Although the blooms mostly prevail on the west coast of ...

Microcystins in Bivalves: Optimizing of Monitoring...

This project addresses an emerging concern across the US - the transfer of freshwater algal toxins into the marine environment where they can infiltrate the food web and present a ...

Multidisciplinary Approach to a Cross-Regional Pro...

Diarrhetic shellfish poisoning (DSP) has emerged as a significant and expanding seafood safety threat in coastal regions across the United States. The harmful algal species Dinophysis produces toxins known to ...

Prevalence of Paralytic Shellfish Toxins in Marine...

Saxitoxins (STXs) produced during Alexandrium Harmful Algal Blooms in Alaska accumulate in shellfish and cause paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP). STXs transfer through zooplankton, forage fish and benthic invertebrates, reaching seabirds ...

Low Quality Habitats Found in Biscayne National Pa...

Green triangles = non-impacted sites; yellow triangles = moderately impacted sites; and red triangles = highly impacted sites. Mean percent normal sea urchin embryo development is in parentheses following the ...

Algal Toxins Found in U.S. Seabirds

A publication sponsored in part by NCCOS presents a retrospective analysis of harmful algal bloom (HAB) related mortality events in California, Washington and Rhode Island between 2007 and 2018 involving ...

Toxic Alga Dinophysis an Emerging Threat to Human ...

How do Light-dependent Mesophotic Corals Survive a...

The ability of deep, light dependent mesophotic corals to grow in low-light conditions is a poorly understood realm of biology. Research, sponsored in part by NCCOS, found that the ability ...

Exploring Airborne Health Risks from Cyanobacteria...

After a November 2018 finding that one type of airborne blue-green algae toxin was likely inhaled deep into human lungs, Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) researchers, supported by NOAA’s National ...

NCCOS Leads from Research to Application for Rapid...
