This paper examines the origin and evolutionary role of microalgae, the phenomenon of harmful dinoflagellate blooms commonly referred to as red tides, their history in the Philippines since a regular annual occurrence in 1983, and the loss of livelihood, morbidity and even death caused through the human consumption of seafood contaminated by such toxins.
