Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Seeks Advice on Harmful Algal Bloom Threat

The sanctuary is interested in whether land-derived nutrients are influencing the recent rise in blooms and domoic acid toxicity and what the sanctuary can do to help reduce nutrient pollution. Sanctuary staff are especially alarmed by the health risks these blooms pose for sea otters, sea lions, and whales.[Source: NOAA National Ocean Service]
