Comic: How to die from toxic algal blooms

[Global] Toxic algal blooms tend to stay underwater, so when a particularly powerful bloom killed an air-breathing human, it shocked the world.

A young oyster farmer died on the shores of Brittany, France after inhaling the toxic gas produced from a large algal bloom. That death resulted from a series of different unfortunate events stemming from pollution, bacteria, and far too much of a good thing.

If you, too, want to know how to die from a toxic algae bloom, read the first ever comic published on Scienceline created by MK Manoylov.
