Red Tide Status

Current Conditions The red tide organism, Karenia brevis, persists in Southwest Florida. Bloom concentrations were detected in Charlotte County only, where “medium” K. brevis concentrations were observed. Background concentrations of K. brevis were also detected in Northwest Florida and on the East Coast of Florida. Over the past week in Southwest Florida, K. brevis was [...]

Bloom concentrations of the red tide organism, Karenia brevis, persist on Florida’s Southwest, Northwest, and East coasts. Patchiness was observed in each area. Additional details are provided below. In Southwest Florida, relative to last week, K. brevis concentrations generally increased from northern Pinellas through Lee counties and decreased in parts of Collier and Monroe counties. [...]

Current Conditions A bloom of the Florida red tide organism, Karenia brevis, persists in Southwest Florida and currently extends from Pinellas to Collier counties along ~145 miles of coastline. Observations of >1,000,000 K. brevis cells per liter (“high” concentrations) continue to occur at coastal and inshore sites from Manatee to northern Collier counties, and minimal [...]

In Southwest Florida over the past week, K. brevis was observed at background to high concentrations in 12 samples collected from Sarasota County, very low to high concentrations in 10 samples collected from Charlotte County, background to high concentrations in 12 samples collected from or offshore of Lee County, and background to low concentrations in [...]

A bloom of the Florida red tide organism, Karenia brevis, persists in Southwest Florida. In Southwest Florida over the past week, K. brevis was observed at background concentrations in one sample collected from Pinellas County, background concentrations in one sample collected from Manatee County, very low concentrations in one sample collected from Charlotte County, background [...]
