Improvements eyed for San Francisco Bay in wake of algae bloom
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Marine scientist Dr. William Cochlan is old friends with the tiny algae blamed for the recent devastating bloom in San Francisco Bay. He and his colleagues at the Estuary and Ocean Science Center in Tiburon first identified it during an event here nearly two decades ago. He says the species is both patient and mobile.
They're able to survive in a pod-like state until conditions are right, and actually navigate around the surface to reach sunlight and nutrients.
