HABs Tabletop Exercise

Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) Preparedness and Response Tabletop Exercise

April 29, 2021


The tabletop exercise aims to identify federal agency responsibilities, areas where enhanced inter-agency coordination is needed, areas for improvement during a response, and how to better engage with states. To further discuss each of these key areas, the tabletop exercise will use a hypothetical cyanobacterial bloom into the Northern Gulf of Mexico as an example of a HAB response event.

The tabletop exercise will help guide the discussion about creating a more effective response strategy in the Gulf of Mexico with a broader application to other areas.
