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".
