You know it's funny...I hear about red tide in Florida and people complain like it's the only place this happens. But every summer they close a bunch of beaches here in Maine because of red tide. So it's not like it only happens in Florida. I don't know but maybe it happens more often in Florida.

people are complaining now because red tide is usually not found on the east coast of FL. it is common on the gulf coast but i've never heard anyone say it only occurs in FL.

I've been unfortunate enough to be around Venice Beach and points North on the Gulf side when your eyes watered and nostrils became irritated (even the locals complained.)

By the way, I found a nice community for you. Similar to Key Largo (beautiful waters) and 92% white non-hispanic (yes, in Florida) Very laid back, totally anti-development and somewhat rustic, oh, and cheap.

The latest report (28 dec) shows that this can be present in the Atlantic shore....




MIDWEEK RED TIDE UPDATE (January 2)

Due to the New Year's holiday no samples have been received this week for analysis. Sampling will continue this week and complete results will be available in the next scheduled status report on Friday, January 4.

REGIONAL RED TIDE SUMMARIES (December 28)

East Region: Water samples collected this week along the east coast of Florida detected Karenia brevis, the Florida red tide organism, between Volusia and Palm Beach counties. Southward progression of the bloom has continued, with cell concentrations diminishing in northern counties and increasing in southern counties. Samples collected alongshore in Volusia County contained no K. brevis while concentrations ranged from not present to low in the southern Mosquito Lagoon. K. brevis concentrations in Brevard County were patchy. Low to medium concentrations were detected in the southern Indian River Lagoon while in Melbourne Beach concentrations of K. brevis dropped from medium to not present over the course of the week. Samples collected between Indian River County and Palm Beach County contained K. brevis concentrations ranging from not present to medium. Additional samples collected offshore of Jupiter Inlet (Palm Beach County) contained background concentrations of K. brevis. Multiple reports of fish kills and respiratory irritation have been received from portions of Brevard and Indian River counties.

Northwest Region: Water samples collected this week from western Choctawhatchee Bay (Okaloosa County) detected Karenia brevis, the Florida red tide organism, at concentrations ranging from not present to very low. Additional samples collected alongshore between Escambia and Okaloosa counties contained no K. brevis.

Southwest Region: Very low concentrations of Karenia brevis, the Florida red tide organism, were detected this week in a single sample collected near New Pass in Sarasota County. All other samples collected between Pinellas and Collier counties contained no K. brevis.

The FWRI Red Tide Status Line is now available to callers to hear a recording detailing red tide conditions throughout the state. FWRI updates the recording each Friday by 5 p.m. after sampling efforts for the week have been completed and analyzed. Red Tide Status Line: (866) 300-9399 (toll-free inside Florida only); (727) 552-2448 (outside Florida).

I wonder where that is? Also it used to be cheap and fun here in the late 80's!
