TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Algae shouldn't pose a problem for swimmers along the Jersey shore this weekend.

The state Environmental Protection Department says Thursday's coastal surveillance flight showed no sign of the recent phytoplankton bloom that was spotted off southern Monmouth and northern Ocean counties.

The DEP says samples collected confirmed marine algae levels are greatly reduced and organisms are below bloom levels.
