Quotes

...that the Clatsop beaches continue to be productive for razor clam harvesters," said Matt Hunter, ODFW's Shellfish and Phytoplankton Project Leader. "By not disturbing the young razor clams, it increases the chance of survival."
"Krill live five to seven years," Saba says. "Their evolution could be tied to cycles in the SouthernSouthern Annular Mode. If they have a good year, that's great. But if they miss even one cycle, that could be catastrophic to their population."
...indicating large blooms earlier in the summer season; over the last 10 years, Environment Canada has measured intense algal blooms and found "average monthly bloom extent across as much as 80% of the lake's surface."
...dense than surrounding seawater, the effluent would quickly rise to the surface via buoyant flow as there is no confining layer," Lapointe wrote. "The increased wastewater load will further elevate (total nitrogen) and (total phosphorus) concentrations above background levels, generating harmful algal blooms (macroalgae, seagrass epiphytes, phytoplankton) and 'dead zones' caused by hypoxia and anoxia in these shallow receiving waters of the plume."
