>Announcing the Second International Conference on Harmful Algae
>Management and Mitigation
>Qingdao, China
>12-16 November, 2001
>Harmful algae and their toxins can have serious impacts on health,
>prosperity and commerce.  These impacts include contamination of
>seafood, damage to aquaculture and fisheries, direct human exposure
>(dermal, aerosol, ingestion), and aesthetic degradation. Furthermore,
>concern over the presence of algal toxins in seafood, or the
>proliferation of harmful algae, can lead to impediments to otherwise
>fruitful international trade.
>The First International Conference on Harmful Algae Management and
>Mitigation was held in the Philippine Islands in May, 1999.
>Continuing the work begun there, this second conference will review
>the nature of harmful algae and their impacts, and then explore
>options for their management and mitigation.
>The goal of the HAMM conferences is to develop practical strategies
>for minimizing the impacts of harmful algae and their toxins on human
>well-being and commerce, throughout and beyond the Asia-Pacific
