While the taxonomy of silica-scale bearing algae of the golden-brown algae (Chrysophyceae and Synurophyceae) has been affirmed on the structure of siliceous scales as determined with the electron microscope (Takahashi 1978; Asmund & Kristiansen 1986; Siver 1989; Kristiansen 2002), "the use of similar criteria in scale-bearing protozoa has been slow to develop" (Nicholls 1983a).

For example, an increase of 400% in phytoplankton biomass and substantial dinoflagellates and chrysophyceae blooms were observed in lake regions close to a trout farm in Canada (Findlay et al., 2009).
