So, while we have said goodbye to the coccolithophore bloom in Hood Canal, we can say hello in Discovery Bay. As you all know I am in Maine at the US Harmful Algal Training course. Today was our coccolithiphore training day. I was able to see some absolutely beautiful live specimens under my microscope. Longing for home, I checked the satellite and saw a coccolithophore bloom in Discovery Bay that began on August 14. I'm not sure how long she will stay so enjoy it while you can!Puget Sound Partnership Recreational Shellfish Program, Washington State Department of Health Discovery Bay, Washington, Washington Department of Ecology Washington Sea Grant Jefferson County Public Health Port Townsend Marine Science Center Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe ...
