Nowadays, climate change represents a major threat to life on Earth. These effects affect freshwater and marine environments causing harmful algal blooms. Algae blooms increase a threat to other marine life because of excessive oxygen absorption in the water. Moreover, it also poses a danger to human health as worse as affects the economics of aquatic products. For these reasons, a mathematical modelling project to prevent harmful algal blooms should be necessary.
