  • Aureococcus anophagefferens is a picoplankionic alga that since 1985 has bloomed in coastal embayments of the western mid-Atlantic, ranging from Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island, to Barnegat Bay, New Jersey, with greatest incidence of recurrence in Long Island bays, New York. Blooms of this small alga, referred to as “brown tide,” can persist for several months during late spring and summer at densities in excess of 1.0×106 cells ml−1. They are not associated with anomalous chlorophyll a… CONTINUE READING
