Phytoplankton & Zooplankton Assessment

The presence of harmful algae (phytoplankton) on fish farms can significantly compromise health. During a bloom event, it is important to understand the predominant species of phytoplankton present, along with the density

Our marine biology staff offer a phytoplankton assessment service to clients sending in iodine- fixed water samples, alongside training for farms wishing to undertake monitoring on-site.

We can also provide full consultancy and design of phytoplankton monitoring protocols for producers.

Our marine biologists can also provide zooplankton identification on fixed samples or (where possible) images forwarded from sites.
