Harmful effect Mortality of fish, tadpoles and gill-breathing invertebrates. For effects of toxins on microalgae, see Skovgaard, A. & Hansen, P.J. (2003). Based on the experience from the USA and elsewhere toxic blooms resulting in fish kills appear to occur at a window of salinity: below a salinity of ca 0.5 blooms are rare and above a salinity of around 12 blooms usually do not occur (Roelke et al. 2016) . The spreading of blooms in freshwater lakes and rivers in drier parts of the USA since the mid 1980s may be related to an increase in salinities in the waters following several years of drought (Roelke et al. 2016) [details]
