Marine cetacean in the South Pacific
Leave a comment
I am excited to be participating in WHOI’s GOMTOX project again this October. I will be sailing aboard a ‘Cyst cruise’, investigating A. fundyense, a toxic dinoflagellate (and one of the causative organisms of ‘red tide’ in shellfish) in the Gulf of Maine, Cape Cod, and Georges Bank. We will be looking to both monitor and predict ‘red tide’ and toxicity in shellfish beds, benthic sediments, and the water column.
