NCOM Vibrio Shellfish Guidance - Alaska
Sea Surface Temperature Vibrio Tools
Sea Surface Temperature (SST) is a major driver of Vibrio growth. In general, once water temperatures exceed 15°C, or 59°F growth will occur, with faster replication at higher temperatures. Because of the strong dependence on temperature for growth, SST is used in some cases to trigger harvest restrictions.
These Vibrio predictive products provide the most recent SST NCOM model guidance out to 4 days for early warning of potential coastal hazards in Alaska. Both 3 hourly and 24 hour maximum SST guidance are available.
