The team also worked on designing and testing face mask prototypes, including one that creates an electrical charge when the user breathes to help zap airborne viruses.
That the neurotoxin is present both during the bloom season as well as during non-bloom periods suggests it is an emerging threat to all lagoon organisms.
Findings could help focus global conservation efforts on reef colonies that are likely to survive through thermal stress events.
