The low-oyxgen area that can't support marine life is the result of urban and agricultural runoff, like fertilizer.
A surge of freshwater released from a Mississippi River spillway is fueling poisonous blue-green algae called cyanobacteria.
New research suggests that we will see deeper shades of blue and green by 2100.
Manatees are dying in America’s most biologically diverse waterway because of pollution.

Project Nourished combines molecular gastronomy with virtual reality to create limitless dining experiences. It uses 3D printed algae as the substrate, as well as a VR headset, an aromatic diffuser, a bone conduction transducer, a gyroscopic utensil, and a virtual cocktail glass. This technology has infinite possibilities and can also help with issues like weight management, diabetes and food allergies.
They are designing and scaling up new protein foods with cells that produce large amounts of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty
As a proud born-and-bred Parisian, as an enthusiastic traveller, as someone who's been living abroad, I must confess that each time I go back home I'm shocked by some archaic features of the City of Lights.
"This is purely consumer driven," said Leslie Mohr, marketing manager at Nestle, adding that prices won't change for customers
Algae is everywhere, it grows easily, and it's full of lipids that, when successfully extracted, have the perfect chemical makeup to be transformed into hydrocarbon fuel. The trick, as always, is to do the processing in a cost-effective and cost-efficient way, a goal that has been elusive so far. Enter Nevada-based Algae Systems.
It is amazing, spooky and utterly unacceptable for the citizens of a civilized nation to be deprived of safe and sufficient water because of pollution and inadequate infrastructure -- especially when they are perched at the edge of the Great Lakes.
Sunday's study found that a type of microscopic algae that can produce 500 generations a year - or more than one a day - can
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported elevated levels of the algae over last week, and said their
The effort to produce algae biofuels has been underway for many, many years, though you wouldn't know it given that there are still virtually none being produced at commercial scale. The hype about making "cheap, abundant fuels with nothing but sunlight and water" remains in spite of the reality on the ground.
Check out the wonder that is the California Academy of Sciences Diatom Collection here. Let us know your thoughts on the
Clearer waters trap more sunlight, fueling the growth of algae, a type of phytoplankton. In the South Bay, growth is up 105
Super corals are corals that have proven particularly resistant to acidic conditions and warmer water temperatures. They
Sara's work has garnered remarkable results, a eureka of sorts, which, according to Professor Anastasios Melis of UC Berkeley, is quite unique. She has been very clever, becoming an important figure in the algae as biofuel community. She managed to manipulate the cells in the algae in such a way that they yielded an amazing amount of oil. When Sara saw the results, she was sure something was wrong but there wasn't.
