This review summarizes the latest research progress on the inhibition mechanism of different nanoparticles on algal bloom. We systematically analyze the influence of environmental factors on migration and transformation of nutrients and the cytotoxicity process regulated by nanoparticles. The future prospects for the immobilization of nanoparticles are explored, and the paper proposes ideas to realize the functional performance of nanomaterials while controlling environmental risks. This research sheds light on new strategies for the inhibition of algal bloom.

Key words: nanoparticles, harmful algal bloom, nutrients, cytotoxicity, immobilization
