With funding provided by the UCSB Coastal Fund, the Sea Grant Extension Program at the Marine Science Institute, UCSB, has two undergraduate student internships available to help with a project investigating various aspects of harmful algal blooms (HABs) in the Santa Barbara Channel. The local waters are experiencing an increase in the frequency, duration and intensity of HABs. Toxins produced by the blooms accumulate in the food web and pose a risk to seabirds, marine mammals and humans. Click title for more info!
