Gulf of Maine Red Tide Monitoring Provides Real-time Data to Managers
Description: From late April to early July 2016, the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) supported Environmental Sample Processor (ESP) deployments in the Gulf of Maine to sample cells and toxins produced by red tide alga, Alexandrium fundyense, and another harmful alga, Pseudo-nitzschia. During these deployments, near real-time data on estimated A. fundyense cell abundance were made available for the first time to state and federal resource managers, researchers, other Gulf of Maine stakeholders and the public via a new WHOI web server.
