The Northwest Fisheries Science Center Marine Biotoxin program and University of Washington scientists together with UCAR SOARS and Hollings Summer Internship students were aboard the NOAA Ship McArthur II for a 2-week research cruise to study the distribution and intensity of harmful algal blooms due to the toxic diatom, Pseudo-nitzschia. Together they monitored for the toxin, domoic acid, enumerate toxic cells, and deploy ocean drifters and moorings to monitor physical oceanographic parameters.
