You have the ability to add nested/thumbnail images—we recommend 250 px wide. Or you can have the system automatically create a thumbnail for you, at 250 px wide, which will then click to enlarge to your original image. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)

Section Head

You can also add as many sections as you would like. Each time you add a new section it creates a subhed for you using the field "Section Head".

Additional Text to Fill Page

This section is simply to add additional text to fill the page. It is taken from an Oceanus article.

Toxic algae enter the marine food chain when they are consumed by small marine animals called zooplankton and by fish or shellfish. The toxins that accumulate in these consumers are then passed up the food chain to marine mammals, seabirds, and even humans, where they can cause illness or even death.

Blooms of some non-toxic species of algae can also cause problems. For example, the North Atlantic right whale is in grave risk of extinction. This species feeds seasonally off Cape Cod on concentrated patches of zooplankton called copepods. In some years, an algal species called Phaeocystis blooms in Cape Cod Bay. Although Phaeocystis is not toxic, large blooms essentially clog surface waters and right whales cannot find the copepod patches they need to eat.

Non-toxic HABs include large blooms of seaweed or macroalgae that can coat beaches, interfering with recreational activities. Other HABs clog seagrass beds and coral reefs, which provide nurseries for commercially important fish and support high levels of biological diversity necessary for a healthy environment.

Harmful algal blooms occur in every part of the world. In the U.S. and other developed countries, monitoring efforts and fishery closures have reduced the incidence of human illness caused by toxic algae. However, both monitoring and closures have economic costs that can be substantial. Perhaps the most striking example of this is the complete loss of the wild shellfish resource in Alaska-which once produced 5 million pounds annually-to persistent paralytic shellfish poisoning.

It is difficult to assess the precise way in which human activities influence the occurrence and severity of HABs. The physical and biological processes involved are not well understood, and long-term observations are sorely lacking. To complicate matters, HABs can and do occur in relatively pristine conditions. But there is a clear connection between nutrient levels and primary production, and there is general agreement among scientists that, other factors being equal, the conditions that favor high levels of primary production also favor HABs.


This is the memo

People often use memos as a separate but related content item to be added at the end of the article. You can also add an image to the memo. The image will appear on the left and suggested size is no larger than 250 px.
