Red Tide: The Not So New
I am from the New Orleans area, but I have visited the southwest coast of Florida many times. Every time I have visited a beach this year in southwest Florida, the effects of red tide are everywhere. From the smell, to the dead fish on shore, red tide has become a force to be reckoned with along the southwest coast. This web site is to educate beach visitors about the causes, effects, locations, and what can be done to prevent this not so new natural phenomenon, known as red tide.
