Besides the states, Africa and Europe, it is common in Central American countries such as Costa Rica, El Salvador, Panama, and Cuba, with Mexico occasionally getting them on the Pacific side.[1]

China had its largest recorded bloom of the algae in 2013, in the Yellow Sea off the coast of Qingdao.[2]
