This new research, published as a special edition of the scientific journal Harmful Algae shows the food sources that support Karenla brevis, the organism that causes Florida's red tides
, are more diverse and complex than previously known.
Second, fish floating dead at the surface does not mean that there is active red tide
in the area.
then can affect an entire industry harvesting blue mussels, surf clams, snails, scallops, oysters and soft-shelled clams.
during an outbreak of red tide
, the pumping of the water into the dam puts back more or less all the oxygen that is lost in the sea.
I believe, this time, there was considerable impact left by the red tide
To my knowledge, this is one of the first successful seasonal predictions, and perhaps the first ever for a red tide
I've had several questions from people about the dead zone, about red tides
, about what these two developments mean, and about whether they're related.
Commonly called red tides
regardless of their color, toxic algal blooms frequently occur in the shallow waters off Florida's west-central coast.
As the name suggests, red tide
is characterized by an explosive growth of microscopic plant-like cells along the Florida coast that often turns the water a reddish-brown color.
In May 2004, a particularly severe red tide
swept 8,000 square km of the East China Sea near Zhejiang Province because of pollution from the nearby Yangtze River.
The red tide
can be turned, but to do it, the California Democratic Party needs to embrace its own base and grow outward - and it needs to do it now.
Thus, there is a high possibility that bivalve larvae frequently encounter red tide
