A vast bloom of toxic algae off the West Coast is denser, more widespread and deeper than scientists feared even weeks ago, according to surveyors aboard a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration research vessel. This coastal ribbon of microscopic algae, up to 40 miles wide and 650 feet deep in places, is flourishing amid unusually warm Pacific Ocean temperatures. It now stretches from at least California to Alaska and has shut down lucrative fisheries. Shellfish managers on Tuesday doubled the area off Washington's coast that is closed to Dungeness crab fishing, after finding elevated levels of marine toxins in tested crab meat.

Shimada collected during its survey this summer on the West Coast. One of the largest toxic algae blooms recorded off the West Coast is much denser, more widespread and may go extend deeper than initially thought, say scientists who surveyed the event aboard a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration research vessel.
