2014 Bloom Season

The presence of an Alexandrium bloom in the western GOM was evident both in ESP data and survey data, with a strong spike of 1000-2000 cells/L in the western Gulf of Maine starting during the 3rd week in May, followed by another strong peak in early June as the bloom continued thru mid-June and declined thereafter. ESP data showed high variability from day to day, likely due to the patchy nature of the population flowing by the mooring.
