Algae blooms on Lough Neagh
My daughter lives very close to Hartbeespoort Dam just north of Johannesburg , a huge dam , home to Pretoria Sailing club , which suffers constantly from both water hyacinth , and also more recently Green/blue algae blooms which have the same effect as the one you are presently experiencing.
They are in contact with Rhodes University Grahamstown in the EasternCape, South Africa, who have a renowned centre for biological control , and have been having some success recently in relation to problems of this sort .
If this is of help - their email is communications@ru.ac.za
I hope this might be of some help.

Sandy Bay Marina
A new 60 berth marina has just been opened by Sandy Bay Marina Ltd at 17a Shore Road, Lough Neagh opposite Rams Island. Located only three miles from the A26 (Airport Road) heading west on the Lough Road this is a very picturesque part of Northern Ireland often overlooked. Rams Island, with it's historical stone tower, has recently had it's infrastructure enchanced for tourism and is the ideal destination for a nature lover's day out - sight-seeing trips are being operated from the new marina.

In addition planning permission for holiday homes overlooking the marina has been granted and this phase of the development should be starting soon. Currently, there are a limited number of boat berths available to the public on a first come/first served basis at a special opening rate of £450 per year. Also available to let is a newly constructed 2000 sq.ft. workshop presenting a lucrative opportunity for a boat sales and repair business.
