Harmful algae blooms in waterways are affecting fishing, swimming, tourism, real estate values and local economies and are a health risk to humans and animals. Decades of research, testing and monitoring alone have not fixed these devastating water quality problems. They worsen every year. 

Join commercially-minded solutions-oriented research, remediation technologies and equipment companies as they tackle the worsening algae bloom and HAB events taking place in US and throughout the world.  Due to different types of remediation technologies needed in canals, streams, rivers, lakes, reservoirs, marinas and ocean/Gulf coastlines

NAA strives to educate all stakeholders ie, states, governors algae task forces, counties, lake associations, ocean/Gulf coastlines authorities, nutrient stewardship farmers, potential investment and general pubic about solutions to fix these devastating algae bloom and HAB problems in 50 states. (

National Algae Association announces On-Farm Nutrient and On-Board Remediation, Recycling and Repurposing Pilot Tests

Harmful Algal Blooms

I. On-Farm Nutrient Remediation, Recycling and Repurposing Pilot Tests are to help remove and reduce nutrient runoff entering non-point source and using effluents to grow algae for biofertilizer and other potential products. We facilitate collaboration between 'nutrient stewardship' farmers, remediation and production technology companies to remove and reduce N & P effluents and liquid manure before entering waterways. 

II. On-Board Remediation and Repurposing Pilot Tests conducted from vessels are to help remove and reduce algae bloom an HABs on waterways and waterbodies. 

Our Science and Chemistry Committee reviews algae bloom, HAB, toxic algae and ride tide remediation technologies that are proven outside the lab, scalable and economically feasible for various types of waterways.

"A harmful algal bloom (HAB) contains organisms that can severely lower oxygen levels in natural waters, killing marine life. Some HABs are associated with algae-produced toxins. Blooms can last from a few days to many months. After the bloom dies, the microbes which decompose the dead algae use up even more of the oxygen, which can create fish die-offs. When these zones of depleted oxygen cover a large area for an extended period of time, they are referred to as dead zones, where neither fish nor plants are able to survive.  

HABs are induced by an overabundance of nutrients in the water. The two most common nutrients are fixed nitrogen (nitrates, ammonia, urea) and phosphate. These nutrients are emitted by agriculture, other industries, excessive fertilizer use in urban/suburban areas and associated urban runoff. Higher water temperature and low circulation are contributing factors. HABs can cause significant harm to animals, the environment and economies. They have been increasing in size and frequency worldwide, a fact that many experts attribute to global climate change".  Wikipedia
