In the framework of monitoring of benthic harmful algal blooms (BHABs), the most commonly reported sampling strategy is based on the collection of macrophytes. However, this methodology has some inherent problems. A potential alternative method uses artificial substrates that collect resuspended benthic cells. The current study defines main improvements in this technique, through the use of fiberglass screens during a bloom of Ostreopsis cf. ovata. A novel set-up for the deployment of… CONTINUE READING
