An analysis of ten years of Pseudo-nitzschia monitoring data in New Zealand indicated that blooms were triggered seasonally (possibly linked to light intensity and day-length), but were not significantly linked to sea water temperature or salinity changes (Rhodes et al. 2012b). Nitrate inputs into sea water from rivers and also from submarine groundwater discharges appear to be creating increased Pseudo-nitzschia blooms in USA waters. The tolerance to various nitrogen sources varies by species and there is inter-strain variability; light may impact nitrogen substrate preference (Trainer et al.

All have been subjected to taxonomic revisions (Dodge 1989), and at one time were all included under the genus Gonyaulax, but are currently accepted as falling into different genera. Gonyaulax spinifera is one of at least 72 Gonyaulax species which have been accepted taxonomically, although there may end up being more than one hundred described species (Guiry and Guiry 2012).
