Welcome back to the Algae Corner with me, Dr. West Bishop! We have a very interesting episode today. I think you're going to learn a lot. Today we're talking about taste and odor issues associated with algae.
Many of you may have encountered or experienced algal taste and odor issues and not even known it. So we’re going to open your eyes (and your nose!) to some of these nuisance types of taste and odor compounds that may be associated with algae and algal blooms.
In summary, today we talked about taste and odor issues associated with algae. We covered those taste and odor compounds: What are they? Who produces them? How do people describe them? Then we covered those main areas where they cause issues: drinking water, aquaponics, and backyard ponds. And last, we talked briefly about what you can do about it: how to solve those taste and odor issues associated with algae.
