Red tide report 11/24/16
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 from Manatee County; medium to high concentrations in ten samples collected from Sarasota County; medium to high concentrations in nineteen samples collected from Charlotte County; background to high concentrations in sixteen samples collected from Lee County; background to very low concentrations in nine samples collected from Collier County; and very low to medium concentrations in seven samples collected from Monroe County.
Additional samples collected throughout Florida over the past week did not contain K. brevis.
This is from the state and it is telling us, that we will have some places of Red tide, but not thick or wide spread.
I will continue to post these for you as I get them small problems are better than big ones.
Happy Thanksgiving at least it is not everywhere, something to be thankful for.
