MRRI Co-Hosts Algal Bloom Mitigation Workshop

The NJSEA’s Meadowlands Research and Restoration Institute (MRRI) and the New Jersey Institute of Technology on Oct. 11 hosted a regional workshop to exchange ideas on the best ways to abate harmful algal blooms. The consortium on Algae Bloom Mitigation and Algal Biotechnology for Sustainable New Jersey featured more than a dozen experts, scientists and researchers from academia, industry and State agencies.

The workshop, held at the Meadowlands Environment Center, came at a critical juncture, as toxic algae blooms continue to increase in New Jersey ponds, lakes and reservoirs. The knowledge exchanged and relationships formed will help strengthen the region’s resolve and efforts to mitigate hazardous algae blooms.
