Members of the Water Quality team have been hard at work developing tools to educate the public about Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs). Recently released, the HABs Primer details what HABs are, what causes them, and other factors concerning the “how’s, why’s and where’s” related to HABs in the Gulf. The Primer was a collaborative effort among many Alliance partners, including the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, NOAA National Coastal Data Development Center, Mote Marine Laboratory, and the Gulf of Mexico Coastal and Ocean Observing System Regional Association.

The Alliance is seeking funds to print this excellent outreach tool. If you are interested, please let us know: Laura.Bowie@gomxa.org.
