Abstract
Since blue green algae comprise one class of algal polluters, it was of interest to determine whether specific biological algicides, namely blue-green algae viruses (BGAV) are practical, specific algal control agents. The objects of this study were (a) to compare the two major methods for isolation of blue-green algae viruses in order to determine whether the finding of viruses in any one local depended upon the isolation method used; (b) to isolate an array of virulent blue-green algae viruses which could be used for field control of these algal polluters.
