An investigation of harmful algae in Nigerian coastal waters was made between 1996 and 2004. Samples were collected from the coastal states of the Atlantic Ocean in the Gulf of Guinea. The states were Lagos, Ondo, Delta, Bayelsa and Rivers states. A total of 24 taxa were identified and classified into three divisions, namely Bacillariophyta, Cyanophyta and Dinophyta. The Dinophyta represented the bulk of the algae comprising 18 taxa in the genera Ceratium, Dinophysis, Gymnodinium, Peridinium, Protoperidinium and Prorocentrum. Some of the species are capable of producing noxious blooms with attendant negative implications for the ecosystems, ecology, economy, recreation and human health.
