Is the plague of Florida’s red tide over? State officials think so.
The Sunshine State’s waters don’t show any sign of the organism that causes it, tests by the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission show. Florida had dealt with red tide blooms since November 2017.
Red tide — fast-moving colonies of algae that can stain water a shade of crimson — kills marine life, irritates people’s skin and causes respiratory problems.
It usually occurs in the fall and winter, but this outbreak lasted more than a year. And Florida businesses are thankful for the timing of it all, since the state’s peak tourist season is just about to begin.
