Limited data from the 2012 and 2013 blooms indicate that up to 3 different genotypes of differing toxicity (Type 1, 4 and 5) were present and detected in toxic shellfish during blooms. Each type have potentially different environmental preferences.
This project aims to compare the temperature, salinity and nutrient preferences of the three different genotypes in order to predict their seasonal contribution to shellfish toxicity.
Suitable for February or July start date.
