"The emergence of Pfiesteria piscicida in coastal waters from here to the Gulf coast poses an insidious challenge to the early warning systems meant to protect human, ecological, and economic resources from toxic harm. The one-celled bugs at the bottom of the food chain are biting back, and we are struggling to find a way to restore the natural balance in which Pfiesteria and its kin can once again live out their complex life cycles in benign obscurity. ... Until recently, the response to Pfiesteria has been episodic and disjointed, separated by time, distance, and a reluctance to connect a few fishkills into a regional or national environmental crisis"--Page 1
