This week we are seeing phytoplankton at lower levels as fall settles in on Kachemak Bay. For the first time since June phytoplankton is sparse at Outer Bay sites. We will continue weekly phytoplankton sampling and analysis through October with bi-weekly email updates. However, the shellfish toxin testing program is wrapping up for the season.
