Bonamici, Kaptur, Joyce Introduce Ocean and Lake Health Legislation

Bipartisan effort improves harmful algal bloom response

Representatives Suzanne Bonamici

Representatives Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR), Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), and David Joyce (R-OH) introduced bipartisan legislation to better prepare for, mitigate, and respond to harmful algal blooms, especially in coastal communities and the Great Lakes region. In a harmful algal bloom event, algae grow rapidly and release dangerous toxins that end up in shellfish, fish, marine mammals, and birds. This threatens fisheries, drinking water, human health, local economies, and aquatic ecosystems.
