The Blue

The blue algae blooms in Hong Kong are incredibly beautiful, however in many cases it’s caused by agricultural runoff. These chemicals seep into the bays where villages depend on fishing. Without sufficient water circulation, it builds up and creates the perfect habitat for Noctiluca Scintillans, an algae, that when disturbed, gives off a fluorescent blue glow. While itself not toxic to wildlife or humans, it's just another symptom to a bigger problem.
