    • Communication and information dissemination methods that state, tribal, local, and international governments and organizations may undertake to educate and inform the public concerning HABs and hypoxia in the Great Lakes; and
    • Perceived needs for handling Great Lakes HAB and hypoxia events, as well as an action strategy for managing future situations.
