    • Appendix 2. Rapid screening methods for Harmful Algal Blooms toxins. 

      Anderson, Donald M.; Laycock, Maurice; Rubio, Fernando (Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO, Paris, France, 2017)
      At the core of all national harmful algal bloom (HAB) programs are the monitoring programs needed to detect HAB toxins in shellfish, fish, water, or other resources sufficiently early to take management actions (Anderson ...
    • Appendix 4. Preservatives and methods for algal cell enumeration. 

      Anderson, Donald M.; Karlson, Bengt (Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO, Paris, France, 2017)
      There are multiple ways to preserve phytoplankton samples and determine the algal species composition and abundance. This Appendix provides details on some of the most common methods. Additional relevant publications are ...
    • Appendix 3. Methods for measuring transparent exopolymer particles and their precursors in seawater. 

      Villacorte, Loreen O.; Schippers, Jan C.; Kennedy, Maria D. (Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO, Paris, France, 2017)
      Transparent exopolymer particles (TEP) and their precursors produced by phyto-/bacterioplankton in fresh and marine aquatic environments are increasingly considered as a major cause of organic/particulate fouling in MF/UF ...
    • Creating a weekly Harmful Algal Bloom bulletin. Version 1.0. [Best Practice Description Document] 

      Leadbetter, Adam; Silke, Joe; Cusack, Caroline (Marine Institute, Galway, Ireland, 2018)
      This document describes the procedural steps in creating an information product focused on toxic and harmful phytoplankton. The product is an online Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) bulletin for aquaculturists, who can face serious ...
    • Recommendations for improved and coherent acquisition and processing of backscatter data from seafloor-mapping sonars. 

      Lamarche, Geoffroy; Lurton, Xavier (2018)
      Multibeam echosounders are becoming widespread for the purposes of seafloor bathymetry mapping, but the acquisition and the use of seafloor backscatter measurements, acquired simultaneously with the bathymetric data, are ...
    • Solutions for managing cyanobacterial blooms: A scientific summary for policy makers. 

      Burford, M.A.; Gobler, C.J.; Hamilton, D.P.; Visser, P.M.; Lurling, M.; Codd, G.A. (UNESCO-IOC, Paris, France, 2019)
      Algae grow wherever there is water; in oceans, freshwater lakes, rivers, streams and pools. They underpin aquatic food webs, providing nutrition for animals in the system, and along with microbes, are responsible for ...
    • GlobalHAB: Evaluating, Reducing and Mitigating the Cost of Harmful Algal Blooms: A Compendium of Case Studies. 

      Trainer, Vera L. (North Pacific Marine Science Organization, Victoria, BC, Canada, 2020)
      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, ...
    • Guidelines for the study of climate change effects on HABs.
