Deadly or Not?

Record #:
In the 1990s, a dinoflagellate called Pfiesteria was reported to be toxic to fish and humans in North Carolina. UNC researchers recently reexamined Pfiesteria and similar species. According to their studies, harmful algal blooms and fish kills are likely caused by multiple species and factors, and cannot solely be attributed to Pfiesteria.
