Over the last two decades, several efforts have been addressed to compile what is known about the economic impacts of harmful algal blooms (HABs; e.g., Anderson et al., 2000; Hoagland and Scatasta 2006; Huppert and Trainer, 2014; Trainer and Yoshida, 2014; Sanseverino et al., 2016). One study estimated the annual cost of HABs in the European Union at 800 million USD (Hoagland and Scatasta, 2006) but most of that cost was extrapolated from very few HAB organisms. In China, a single Karenia mikimotoi event in 2012 caused up to 330 million USD loss to the mariculture industry, mostly cultivated abalone (Guo et al., 2014). Although past reports have attempted to gather comprehensive economic impact data (e.g., Trainer and Yoshida, 2014), both the type and amount of information were limited, highlighting the need for collaboration between HAB scientists and economists. Furthermore, most countries have neither conducted economic analyses of HABs nor collected data that can be used to generat.....
