It isn't just Baltimore's Inner Harbor that's been plagued lately with fish-killing algae blooms. Scientists with the Department of Natural Resources say they've been seeing "extensive algal blooms" this month across Maryland's portion of the Chesapeake Bay.

The scientists say they've detected high concentrations of Prorocentrum minimum, a type of algae with little whiplike arms that enable it to move in the water.
