CALL 911 OR YOUR LOCAL HEALTH CARE PROVIDER IMMEDIATELY IF YOU SUSPECT SHELLFISH POISONING.

Data Portal

AHAB Network members and partners have conducted long-term phytoplankton research and monitoring to better understand the environmental conditions that trigger HABs and affect the degree of their toxicity. This portal provides access to phytoplankton monitoring and shellfish testing data.

Physical and environmental data are also available to better understand the environmental conditions that trigger HABs and affect the degree of their toxicity. 

The goal is to provide community members and resource managers with information to inform their management decisions, which can reduce their risks from the adverse health effects associated with HABs.

The portal is NOT a direct measure of current shellfish toxicity. It is ALWAYS recommended to check advisories from the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services and the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation before harvesting shellfish.

Current HAB Alert: High densities of Alexandrium cells were observed by the HAB cruise in the Bering Strait region at the beginning of September. A strong storm in Western Alaska washed up clams along the coast and harvesters are encouraged to stay alert and contact their local health care providers if they experience any of the signs of PSP after consuming shellfish.Learn more »
