In this paper, we analyze a nutrient-phytoplankton model with toxic effects governed by a Holling-type Ⅲ functional. We show the model can undergo two saddle-node bifurcations and a Hopf bifurcation. This results in very interesting dynamics: the model can have at most three positive equilibria and can exhibit relaxation oscillations. Our results provide some insights on understanding the occurrence and control of phytoplankton blooms.
