Today is one of those days you wish you weren't the person responsible for counting the plankton net tow. A huge thank you to Maggie, a dedicated SoundToxins monitor from the Stillaquamish tribe that samples Port Susan every week looking for harmful algae and documenting plankton species in the bay. This is a sample of Pseudo-nitzschia that was in her net tow on Tuesday. She immediately notified SoundToxins and we were able to alert the Washington State Department of Health for them to to determine if the bloom is producing domoic acid. It is important to note, not all Pseudo-nitzchia produce toxins. This bloom has over 4 million cells/liter. That is a lot of counting! A huge thank you to all of the SoundToxins partners for their dedication to Puget Sound!SoundToxins is an amazing partnership founded by NOAA harmful algae researcher Vera Trainer over 10 years ago.
