Texas Parks and Wildlife - Harmful Algal Blooms Research & Education

Status updates will be posted here as they become available relating to harmful algal blooms in Texas. Please note that harmful algal blooms are not usually present in Texas waters. Therefore this page will only be updated in the event of a confirmed harmful algal bloom in a body of water. When no blooms are present, no updates will be given.
