To assist the researches of toxic and harmful algae and provide government workers with judgment basis for decision-making related events, we established a biological information management system for toxic and harmful algae in China’s offshore to assist relevant research. In this study, Karenia mikimotoi was studied as a typical toxic and harmful algae species, and the basic biological information and biogeographic distribution information of K. mikimotoi were systematically studied and collected. In the part of basic biological information, the name, toxin, and molecular characteristic sequence of K. mikimotoi were sorted out by literature searching and website browsing. Through experimental means, the relevant information of morphological identification, pigment composition, and lipid composition were obtained. In the part of biogeographic distribution information, this study sorted out the information of K. mikimotoi, analyzed the characteristics of its occurrence, and completed the standardized construction of biogeographic distribution information. Through the collation of basic biological information and biogeographic distribution information of K. mikimotoi, the standardization of related information was completed, which provided template and method reference for information collection of other toxic and harmful algae species, which was beneficial to the database analysis and design.
Key words:    harmful algae|basic biological information|biogeographic distribution information|information standardization
