There’s an algae bloom the size of Mexico in the Arabian Sea right now, and it’s not good – ScienceAlert

But what’s really concerning is the fact that these dinoflagellate blooms weren’t regularly seen until the past decade or so, and now are becoming increasingly common around the planet – particularly in the Arabian Sea.

“It’s unusual for Noctiluca to bloom in the open sea and return year after year,” said Andrew Juhl, a microbiologist from Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty back in 2014. “All of these observations suggest that something dramatic has changed in the Arabian Sea.”

Hmmmmmm I wonder what it could be? Increasing ocean temperatures perhaps?!
