Happy 4th of July! This week we joined our Fish and Game partners for their clam surveys in Kachemak Bay, allowing us to collect samples for our wild shellfish toxin testing program. We expect to have those results to share with you all in next week’s weekly update. The phytoplankton samples from the Inner Bay continue to be sparse. This is in contrast to what we observed in the Outer Bay samples with Chaetoceros sp. dominating and even reaching bloom levels at Kastisna Bay.
