ENY-851S, a 5-page illustrated fact sheet by Jorge R. Rey, is the Spanish version of ENY-851, “Red Tides” (forthcoming). It explains what these “harmful algal blooms” are, what causes them, their impacts on marine ecosystems, human health, and coastal economies, and strategies for mitigation and control.
