Algal blooms are natural but they are not supposed to reach the point where they overwhelm the ocean environments where they bloom. Unfortunately, the acidification of our oceans have resulted in more algal blooms cropping up all over the world; and a new study has found a massive toxic algal bloom—one of the largest ever seen along the Pacific Coast of North America—continues to spread towards both Alaska and Southern California. In fact, this algal bloom has forced the shutdown of many economically important fisheries along the West Coast.
