The Golden Alga Workshop was organized to bring together stakeholders and regional, national, and international experts to discuss the state of knowledge on this toxic alga, the information lacking for understanding the alga, and important actions or projects needed to develop management options for this alga. This information will be used by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in decisions for implementing and funding projects to develop management strategies for Texas. The TPWD Golden Alga Task Force developed, organized, and coordinated the workshop, with Group Solutions, Inc. serving as facilitator.
