Highlight Information
Brown tides of Aureococcus anophagefferens occur in shallow mid-Atlantic bays in the USA and attain peak summer densities of ~1000 to 2800 cells µl -1. [...] Key Result Brown tide consistently inhibited veliger growth rates in a dose-dependent manner, leading to arrested development in the D-stage; yet mortalities varied greatly among larval batches and were attributed to secondary effects of nutritional stress.Expand Abstract
