Bloomin' Algae

The Bloomin' Algae app enables the public and local authorities to record events of blue-green algae blooms, thereby speeding up warnings to the public and governmental institutions.

Blue-green algal blooms can produce very potent liver and nerve toxins. The World Health Organisation has established guideline values of cyanotoxins and blue-green algae densities for recreational waters use and for drinking waters, as the presence of blue-green algae can threaten public health as well as the lives of dogs, cattle, birds and fish. The app also allows the public to learn to recognise the risks for themselves, and their children and pets.
