Of the many oceanic ecosystems experiencing climate-driven changes worldwide, the Arabian Sea stands out as the one with the most dramatic and extreme changes of all. In the western Arabian Sea, along the coast of Oman, these changes have begun manifesting in the form of widespread blooms of the mixotroph Noctiluca. Although Noctiluca blooms are non-toxic, their emergence as a major component of the food chain and their ability to destabilize the food chain represent a significant threat to Oman’s rich traditional artisanal fisheries.
