Utilizing cooperative fisheries research to better understand harmful algal blooms along the Oregon coast

This project aims to gain more knowledge on the spatial and environmental factors affecting the abundance of certain phytoplankton species that are known to cause harmful algal blooms. By collaborating with charter and commercial fishermen based in Newport, we gained a broad spatial snapshot of phytoplankton abundance and environmental factors such as temperature and salinity. Fishermen were equipped with water sampling kits and data sheets to collect surface water samples and environmental data at their regular fishing locations. These samples were then run through an Imaging Flow Cytobot (IFCB), and the data was shared with project fishermen and state managers
