Story Map of Harmful Algae in the U.S.

In collaboration with the U.S. National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science and the University of Washington, NOAA Fisheries’ Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, WA created an interactive story map to call attention to the social and economic impacts of harmful algal blooms. Using the latest nationwide economic figures and told through the stories of those citizens personally affected by the 2015 U.S. West Coast event, these new materials document the human toll of harmful algal blooms in coastal communities.
