Round 1

Reviewer 1 Report

The paper is well structured and written. The Results are well presented and the discussion is relevant to the topic of the paper.

Furthermore the paper is very interesting and worthy to be published, presenting a full annual cycle with weekly sampling in an E. Mediterranean eutrophic environment with HABs, urban, agricultural, industrial in parallel with tourism and maritime activities.  I definitely recommend to publish this MS in "Diversity".

Reviewer 2 Report

This article treats with phytoplankton blooms, red tides and mucilaginous aggregates in the urban Thessaloniki Bay, Eastern Mediterranean occurred from March 2017 to February 2018. The results of investigation carried out for one year in detail are available to prevent from harmful intoxication, pollution or case occurring due to dinoflagellates, cilliates or their mucilaginous aggregate phenomenon in many other suffering countries.
