Significant harmful algal bloom forecast for western Lake Erie this summer: NOAA

Western Lake Erie will have a significant bloom of cyanobacteria, a toxic blue-green algae, this summer, NOAA and its research partners have predicted. The harmful algal bloom (HAB) season is expected to be larger than last year, but less than the record-setting 2011 bloom.

“This annual forecast and NOAA’s weekly bulletins provide the most advanced ecological information possible to Great Lakes businesses and resource managers so they can save time and money on the things they do that drive recreational activities and the economy,” said NOAA’s assistant administrator for the National Ocean Service.
