27 July 2010 - Green Slime in LA and Orange Counties

Green slime appeared at the surface of the coastal waters from Long Beach down through Newport Beach last week. Samples were collected by the County of Orange Health Care Agency, the Orange County Sanitation District and the Southern California Coastal Water Research Project. Researchers at University of Southern California identified the samples as being highly dominated by one species, Tetraselmis, which is very small flagellated chlorophyte. This is not a harmful species so there are no documented health hazards from this organism. The University of Southern California researchers have seen this species in past summers in southern California, but it appears to be more widespread this year.
