Algal Blooms News

To assist with the crowdsourcing of marine mammal strandings, UCSC and CeNCOOS have partnered with JellyWatch. JellyWatch is a website and mobile app that allows users to report sightings of a variety of marine organisms.

Laura Rogers-Bennett of the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and colleagues recently announced the discovery of the organism behind an algal bloom event that wiped out thousands of red abalone on the Sonoma Coast in 2011.
