Title of Collaborative Activity:

Interagency Working Group on Harmful Algal Bloom and Hypoxia Research and Control Act (IWG-HABHRCA)

Description of Collaborative Activity:

Harmful algal bloom (HAB) and hypoxia (severe oxygen depletion) events are scientifically complex and economically damaging. They challenge our ability to safeguard the health of our nation’s coastal, Great Lakes, and freshwater ecosystems. Nearly every state experiences some type of hypoxia or HAB event. Federal agencies are working together to advance the understanding of HAB and hypoxia events, and respond to, detect, predict, control, and mitigate these events to the greatest extent possible, as mandated by the Harmful Algal Bloom and Hypoxia Research and Control Amendments Act of 2014 (HABHRCA).
