BioPop propagates a species of dinoflagellate classified as Pyrocystis fusiformis. BioPop is the dinoflagellate authority when it comes to growth and production of this species. To date, BioPop has grown well over 30,000 liters of dinoflagellates in our facility in Carlsbad, CA. This translates to roughly 9 trillion individual dinoflagellate cells. Biopop is committed to providing comprehensive information on dinoflagellate care. Oftentimes we need to condense and simplify this information so it does not overwhelm the average Dino Pet owner.

Red Tide predicted for South Ponto Beach tonight! Well... sort of. While there won't be a true natural Red Tide, BioPop will be celebrating Earth Day on the beach with one of Mother Nature’s most spectacular phenomena- bioluminescence! Join us tonight, April 22nd, around 8:00pm (sunset) at Carlsbad Blvd. Encinitas, CA (near the volleyball courts). We will have a bioluminescent lagoon to splash around in, Dino Pets to play with, a fire pit to enjoy, and new products to check out.  This will be a great opportunity to learn more about dinoflagellates and bioluminescence, and meet the BioPop team while you're at it! We hope to see...

Beautiful art through Biology for the Popular Culture.
