The occurrence of Chrysochromulina polylepis in the Skagerrak and Kattegat in May, June 1988 : An analysis of extent, effects and causes
In May/June 1988 an unexpected exceptional phytoplankton bloom of the flagellate species Chrysochromulina polylepis developed over large areas of the Skagerrak and Kattegat. This algal bloom turned out to be toxic, in particular to encaged fish in coastal maricultures, but showed also impacts on benthic fauna. Based on a collaborative multi-disciplinary approach between research institutes from Denmark, Norway, Sweden and the Federal Republic of Germany, the report assesses the extent, causes and effects of the Chrysochromulina bloom event. It discusses the predictability of exceptional algal blooms and recommends subjects for further research.
