Researchers study plumes of algae in Sequim, Discovery bays; biotoxins stand below hazard levels – PDN

This bloom, if it worsens, will affect tribal clamming, and crabbing, in addition to recreational users.

An algae strain capable of producing a potentially deadly biotoxin rarely found on the North Olympic Peninsula has been found in large quantities in both Sequim and Discovery bays. The marine algae has produced biotoxins in Sequim Bay, but not to the level that represents a public health risk, researchers said. Chris McDaniel reports. (Peninsula Daily News)
