Algal situation reports

Reports from SMHIs offshore sampling programme, which describe the algal situation in marine waters surrounding Sweden.

Algae report number 1, 2017

All phytoplankton samples from the Skagerrak, the Kattegat and the Baltic Sea had low species diversities. All of the cell counts were very low. All of the Skagerrak stations except Släggö were not visited during the cruise due to bad weather conditions. No further detailed phytoplankton …

Algae report number 11, 2016

A diatom bloom was present at the Skagerrak and Kattegat stations with a dominance of Pseudo-nitzschia spp.* and Pseudosolenia calcar-avis. Chlorophyllfluorescence maxima at Släggö, Anholt E and W Landskrona were mainly caused by the same diatom species. There were quite high cell numbers of …

Algae report number 10, 2016

A minor autumn bloom was observed at the Skagerrak and Kattegat stations with high phytoplankton diversity. The flagellate Dictyocha speculum* was found in a so called naked stage, without the silica structure, when the species is potentially harmful. The species was numerous in the Skagerrak and …

Algae report number 9, 2016

The phytoplankton diversity was low in the Skagerrak area and at the station Släggö, the chlorophyll a concentrations were below normal for this month. The number of species and the number of cells were higher in the Kattegat than in the Skagerrak, but chlorophyll a concentrations were low. In the …

Algae report number 8, 2016

Ciliates, naked dinoflagellates and small species like cryptomonads were common in the phytoplankton samples from the Skagerrak and Kattegat areas. In the Kattegat, diatoms were common. A few potentially toxic species were found in low amounts. The filamentous cyanobacterium Nodularia spumigena* …

Algae report number 7, 2016

The diatom Proboscia alata was found in relatively high concentrations at all stations in the Skagerrak. One or two chlorophyll maxima were found at all stations, mainly caused by the dinoflagellate genus Ceratium. At a couple of stations quite high densities of the fish killing species Karenia …

Algae report number 6, 2016

The species diversity among the dinoflagellates was high in the Skagerrak but it was the diatom species Proboscia alata that dominated the phytoplankton community. The Kattegat was dominated by chain forming diatom species. Proboscia alata were among the most abundant all over Kattegat with the …

Algae report number 5, 2016

Diatom species, often blooming during summer, were rather abundant in the Kattegat and Skagerrak samples. These summer species, as well as the diatom Chaetoceros danicus, also dominated in the samples from the chlorophyll fluorescence maxima. The flagellate Emiliania huxleyi is blooming in the …

Algae report number 4, 2016

The phytoplankton activity was rather low in the Kattegat and Skagerrak areas. Diatoms were common in the Kattegat though, with several species observed at variable abundances. The diversity was very low in the Skagerrak area. Chlorophyll fluorescence peaks at Fladen in the Kattegat and at Släggö …
