We are still seeing some phytoplankton in our samples. None of our samples had any species with elevated numbers but we are still seeing a variety. We will be continuing to sample the Homer Harbor weekly throughout the winter but otherwise will only be taking phytoplankton samples opportunistically. We invite everyone to join us for a lunch lecture tomorrow at the Kachemak Bay Campus in Homer for a presentation on Harmful Algal Blooms in Kachemak Bay and South-Central Alaska.
