Gain the tools needed to make informed decisions regarding HABs to reduce the risk to the environment and human health.

This topic will provide an overview of the issues revolving around harmful algal blooms and their impact on the water resources we as a nation use and depend on every day. Algal blooms have created problems throughout history; however, the occurrence of harmful and toxic algal blooms have been reported more frequently over the past decade. The cyanotoxins that are produced during harmful algal bloom (HAB) conditions have shut down public beaches, reportedly have caused the deaths of livestock and pets, have the potential to cause neurological and liver damage, illicit asthma, and other respiratory illnesses, and have impacted drinking water quality. The economic losses due to these blooms have been experienced around the country as travel declines to tourist destinations, water treatment costs rise, and algal bloom control and remediation efforts increase.
