red tide

The Florida red tide organism, Karenia brevis, persists at background to very low concentrations in Southwest Florida. Over the past week, Karenia brevis was observed at background to very low concentrations in four samples collected from Pinellas County; background to very low concentrations in two samples collected from Manatee County; and background to very low [...]

Last year we shared a press release from NOAA on a three-year $1.1 million grant from NASA for scientists from Mote Marine Laboratory, the Gulf of Mexico Coastal Ocean Observing System and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to fine-tune current red tide forecasts with the goal of offering public health managers, coastal residents and [...]

The Florida red tide organism, Karenia brevis, persists at background to very low concentrations in Southwest Florida. Over the past week, Karenia brevis was observed at background concentrations in one sample collected from Pinellas County; background to very low concentrations in six samples collected from Sarasota County; and background to very low concentrations in six [...]

A patchy bloom of the Florida red tide organism, Karenia brevis, persists in Southwest Florida from southern Pinellas to northern Collier counties. Over the past week, Karenia brevis was observed at very low concentrations in one sample collected from Pinellas County; background to very low concentrations in five samples collected from Manatee County; background to [...]

2016 will be remembered by many of us living on Florida’s Gulf coast as one of the worst seasons for red tide in recent years. Throughout the summer and the fall and on into the winter holidays, our beaches and coastal waterways have been plagued with periodic outbreaks of red tide. The scientific community has [...]

A bloom of the Florida red tide organism, Karenia brevis, persists in Southwest Florida from southern Pinellas to northern Monroe County. Karenia brevis was observed in very low to low concentrations in five samples collected from Pinellas County; low concentrations in one sample collected from Hillsborough County; background to medium concentrations in seven samples collected [...]
