Monitor cyanobacteria, algae and weeds from your desktop in near real-time
The online cyanobacteria warning and information service
CyanoLakes is the first service that can distinguish harmful cyanobacteria from other algae. In offering relevant information in near real-time to subscribers worldwide via the cloud, it presents a great example of how to take research findings to commercial services.

Our product was developed through funding from the European Commission Project No. 730141 and Water Research Commission Projects K5/2458 and K5/2518.
Monitoring on a national scale is very expensive, logistically challenging and labour intensive. The [service] will allow monitoring of waterbodies not in the current network… [and] will allow us to optimise our monitoring network and streamline our activities. The data generated will lead to a significantly improved ability to manage and mitigate the harmful effects of potentially toxic cyanobacteria blooms and nutrient enrichment… which are widespread in SA dams.
