An Introduction to Phytoplankton and Harmful Algal Blooms — SAMS

An Introduction to Phytoplankton and Harmful Algal Blooms — SAMS | Aqua-tnet |

This course will introduce you to the primary phytoplankton in the water, along with those which give cause for concern.  We’ll share how you can use that information to monitor your water, gauge when to harvest, and spot certain environmental factors that may lead to harmful algal blooms.

Delivered by leading algae scientists from SAMS (the Scottish Association for Marine Science), this course is a practical introduction from the specialist team that analyses water collected from the shellfish growing areas around Scotland for the Food Standards Agency (FSA).  Be prepared for practical laboratory sessions (and a few Latin names), as we want to ensure you have plenty of practical experience and leave knowing what to look for and how to look for it.

Thanks, dear Fabienne, this is really insightful.

In teaching one might want to progressively move from one level to the next, yet I would expect that one could work on all levels simultaneously.

How much more would children learn when they ask their 3-year-old, "What do you think ..."

Good information for teaching or treatment plans.
