Toxic algae bloom off West Coast might be largest ever

Things seem to be much worse off the west coast of the US. I am glad that the folks at DFO are keeping an eye on this. But what does it mean about the current state of federal gov't science that I feel suspicious when  a gov't scientist says that there is nothing to worry about?

Fisheries and Oceans Canada is also monitoring the unusually large bloom, which has already resulted in the closure of one fisheries area off Vancouver Island just north of Tahsis.

But DFO scientist Ian Perry said most areas are not at levels that would raise health concerns.
