Pfiesteria Piscicida

Pfiesteria Piscicida. I first ran across this stuff in an article that mentioned it in the context that it kills fish, hence the name, and causes temporary but sometimes long-term neurological impairment in humans. Now if that's not a plot device waiting to happen I don't know what is. However, a search for verification of this information produced a mass of uncertainty. I've read everything from "this microorganism is in fact harmless" to "under certain circumstances it mutates and becomes harmful" to "WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS BEFORE IT KILLS US ALL". So I was wondering if perhaps anyone has any first or second hand experience with Pfiesteria Piscicida exposure or perhaps a very scholarly, neutral article?
