Algal Blooms What are they?
2014 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

When phytoplankton – microscopic aquatic plants –

occur in very large quantities, an algal bloom is said to

arise. The water becomes cloudy and changes colour,

and the algae form a layer on the surface, varying in

thickness depending on the intensity of the bloom. This

algal mass may be toxic, so you should avoid bathing in

the water until the bloom is over.
