​3rd Interdisciplinary Freshwater Harmful Algal Blooms Workshop

  • Toronto, ON Canada (map)

The occurrence of harmful algal blooms (HABs) in freshwater environments has steadily increased for decades due to shifting climate and eutrophication caused by anthropogenic activity. The reoccurrence of these blooms has inspired teams of scientists and regulators across multiple disciplines to systematically work together to achieve a broader understanding of the occurrence, fate, and ultimately, impacts of HABs on ecosystems used for drinking water, irrigation, fishing, and recreational purposes.

The 3rd Interdisciplinary Freshwater Harmful Algal Blooms Workshop (IFHAB), hosted in Toronto, Ontario from April 24 - 26, 2019, will draw in leading experts from across North America into a synergistic forum to share their research findings and discuss innovative solutions.
