The second grant program, MERHAB (Monitoring and Event Response for Harmful Algal Blooms), was launched in 1989 with the aim of moving science-based projects developed in ECOHAB or elsewhere into real-world, management-based settings, although it too has issued no new grants since 2011.
Dortch, who manages the ECOHAB and PCM HAB programs, says the Gulf of Maine forecasts will eventually be transitioned into NOAA's Harmful Algal Bloom Operational Forecast System, which already provides forecasts for Karenia brevis blooms off the coasts of Florida and Texas.

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, and its interagency partners, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA), and the Office of Naval Research (ONR), are seeking applications proposing targeted research projects of up to 3 years duration and, depending on appropriations, multidisciplinary regional studies for 3-5 years for the Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms (ECOHAB

Program (R-83041501-0) and a NSF-REU site grant (OCE-0097498) to the Boston University Marine Program.

For that reason, the Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms, or ECOHAB
, program (Lenes's project at the University of Florida) aims for a comprehensive look at the marine ecosystem, its shifts in species, its temperatures, and its chemistry.
Red tides and/or harmful algal blooms dominated by phototrophic dinoflagellates often have caused large-scale mortality of adult bivalves (e.g., ECOHAB
