I think an appropriate analogy is “fight fire with fire.” In this approach, algae are farmed to produce productive and useful biomass while removing excess nutrients downstream of sources of agricultural runoff. By cleaning the water, the beneficial algae mitigate the conditions that result in harmful algal blooms. I expect we will be hearing much more about this approach in the future.
