FWC Karenia brevis or red tide

Two entities have partnered together to provide up-to-date information on the algal blooms.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg and the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium in Sarasota have joined together to monitor harmful algal blooms in coastal waters and disseminate HAB-related information, including red tide.

The information can be found online at www.myfwc.com/research/redtide.

In addition, the entities have created a Facebook page called “Florida Red Tide and other Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs)” or @FLHABs to provide updates via social media on the ongoing situation.
