Abstract

Describes persistent and recurrent metalimnetic blooms of Oscillatoria agardhii in the eutropic Lake Ostra Kyrksundet, SW Finland and associated toxin peaks. The desmethyl-microcystin-RR (a cyclic heptapeptide hepatotoxin) levels in the metalimnion were 20-40 μg.L-1 and paralleled chlorophyll a concentrations. -from Authors
