A type of potentially toxic algae known as “red tide” is blanketing an area roughly the size of Connecticut in the northeastern part of the Gulf of Mexico.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission released a report on July 25, 2014, confirming a large-scale fish kill in the area. Since then, more fish have died as a result of the toxic, but naturally occurring, algae, formally called Karenia brevis.
Spokesperson for the FWC Brandon Basino said there are unconfirmed civilian reports of thousands of dead fish and that the research team is working in the area to verify. . . .
