Harmful algal blooms (HABs) represent a natural phenomena caused by a mass proliferation of phytoplankton (cyanobacteria, diatoms, dinoflagellates) in waterbodies. Blooms can be harmful for the environment, human health and aquatic life due to the production of nocive toxins and the consequences of accumulated biomass (oxygen depletion). These blooms are occurring with increased regularity in marine and freshwater ecosystems and the reasons for their substantial intensification can be associated with a set of physical, chemical and biological factors including climate changes and anthropogenic impacts. Many bloom episodes have significant impacts on socio-economic systems. Fish mortality, illnesses caused by the consumption of contaminated seafood and the reluctance of consumers to purchase fish during HABs episodes represent only some of the economic impacts of HABs.
