In this episode of Pond University, we talk with Ciera Baird. Ciera is an Aquatic Ecotoxicologist with Aquatic Control and is an expert on harmful algal blooms. Ciera talks to us about the difference between regular “green” algae and blue-green algae, or cyanobacteria, and the types of conditions that can lead to harmful algal blooms. Ciera also discusses the negative impacts of these blooms and how to prevent and manage them in your pond or lake. We hope you enjoy this episode! Also, please consider taking our anonymous listener survey so that we can improve the podcast and include topics that you are interested in.
