In our lab, we have identified how fish can be killed through a complex sequence of algal cells bursting and damaging the gills of the fish. This sequence includes the release of a cocktail of reactive oxygen species, polyunsaturated free fatty acids, and other agents that can have a toxic effect on cells. In this project, we aim to block key steps in this event chain towards achieving new insights into fish killing mechanisms and designing effective fish kill mitigation strategies for fisheries and aquaculture.
