National and international public policies for the management of harmful algal bloom events. A case study on the Brazilian coastal zone
Description: The expression Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) includes toxin-producing species and those that produce biomass in sufficient quantities to significantly reduce the concentration of dissolved oxygen in the water column and cause mortality events for other marine organisms. Originally a natural phenomenon, these blooms are becoming more frequent and persistent due to the impact of the anthropogenic action. This journal article reviews Brazilian environmental public policy regarding the issue of HABs. [Source: Ocean & Coastal Management]
