A relatively quiet week to report out on the phytoplankton in Kachemak Bay. This week we continue to see dinoflagellates be the most numerous group of phytoplankton in the samples. Peterson Bay sample is dominated by Protoperidinium sp., a dinoflagellate, while other samples didn’t have a single dominant dinoflagellate species this week.
Additional information, including qualitative analysis of phytoplankton data, is available in the Phytoplankton Update for Jul. 17th – Jul. 23rd.
