No one really knows why the dirty method has worked for some dinoflagellates. Some speculate it gives other macro algae a chance to out compete Dinos for nutients. Thus more macro algea in turn gives pods more food as well. Some have introduced a specific type of pod....i belive it is the Tisbe in conjunction with phytoplankton.
