A recent www.cbc.ca article talked about how Scientists off the western coast of Canada, are remineralizing the water with iron sulfate to cause algae blooms that might attract spawning salmon back to our shores.

Apparently large algae blooms affect oxygen levels in the water but if performed on a more widely dispersed scale, does this have the potential to work?

Is this also a way to pull atmospheric carbon into the oceans in the form of life?
