Researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have identified a potential 'red tide killer.' Red tides and related phenomena in which microscopic algae accumulate rapidly in dense concentrations have been on the rise in recent years, causing hundreds of millions of dollars in worldwide losses to fisheries and beach tourism activities. Despite their wide-ranging impacts, such phenomena, more broadly referred to as 'harmful algal blooms,' remain unpredictable in not only where they appear, but how long they persist...
