RED TIDE REPORT

Red Tide Mid-Week Update for December 12, 2018

Current Conditions
A patchy bloom of the red tide organism, Karenia brevis, persists in Southwest Florida. On the East Coast, K. brevis cells were present but not at bloom concentrations. In Northwest Florida, K. brevis was not observed. Additional details are provided below.

  • Over the past week in Southwest Florida, K. brevis was observed in samples from and/or offshore of Pinellas to Collier counties, excluding Hillsborough County. “High” concentrations (>1,000,000 K. brevis cells per liter) were not observed, although “medium” concentrations occurred at two sites each in Manatee and Sarasota counties. Relative to last week, K. brevis concentrations decreased in all sampled Southwest Florida counties.
  • Along the Florida East Coast over the past week, K. brevis was observed at background concentrations in Palm Beach County.

Fish Kills
In Southwest Florida, fish kill reports were received for Manatee, Sarasota, and Collier counties. More detailed information is available at http://myfwc.com/fishkill.

Respiratory Irritation
Respiratory irritation was reported over the past week in Southwest Florida (in Manatee, Sarasota, Lee, and Collier counties).

Forecast
Forecasts by the USF-FWC Collaboration for Prediction of Red TidesExternal Website for Pinellas to northern Monroe counties predict variable transport of surface waters with net western movement, and net southeastern movement of subsurface waters in most areas over the next four days.

Red Tide Report (Update)

Red Tide Mid-Week Update for December 5, 2018

Current Conditions
Bloom concentrations of the red tide organism, Karenia brevis, persist in Southwest Florida. In Northwest Florida and on the East Coast, K. brevis cells were present but not at bloom concentrations. Additional details are provided below.

  • Over the past week in Southwest Florida, K. brevis was observed in samples from and/or offshore of Pinellas to Collier counties, excluding Hillsborough County. Observations of >1,000,000 K. brevis cells per liter (“high” concentrations) and “medium” concentrations occurred in those same counties, with the exception of Manatee County where “high” levels were not detected. Relative to last week, K. brevis concentrations generally decreased in Manatee and Sarasota counties, and parts of Pinellas, Charlotte and Lee counties. Cell concentrations increased in other parts of Pinellas, Charlotte and Lee counties as well as in Collier County. 
  • In Northwest Florida, conditions during this past week were comparable to last week, with K. brevis observed in or offshore of Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Bay, Gulf, and Franklin counties but not at bloom (“high” or “medium”) concentrations.
  • Along the Florida East Coast over the past week, K. brevis was observed at background concentrations in Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties only.

Fish Kills
In Southwest Florida, fish kill reports were received for Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties. In Northwest Florida, fish kills were reported in Escambia, Santa Rosa, and Gulf counties. Fish kills were not reported for the East Coast of Florida. More detailed information is available at http://myfwc.com/fishkill.

Respiratory Irritation
Respiratory irritation was reported over the past week in Southwest Florida (in Pinellas, Manatee, Sarasota, Lee, and Collier counties) and Northwest Florida (in Escambia and Okaloosa counties). Respiratory irritation was not reported on the East Coast of Florida.

Forecast
Forecasts by the USF-FWC Collaboration for Prediction of Red TidesExternal Website for Pinellas to northern Monroe counties predict net southwestern transport of surface waters and net southeastern movement of subsurface waters in most areas over the next four days. Four-day forecasts for Escambia to Gulf counties predict net southeastern surface transport and net northeastern subsurface movement in most areas.

Red Tide Report (Update)

Red Tide Status Update for November 21, 2018

Weekly Change November 15 to 21

Current Conditions

Bloom concentrations of the red tide organism, Karenia brevis, persist on Florida’s Southwest and Northwest coasts. Patchiness occurred in both areas. On the East Coast, bloom concentrations of K. brevis were not observed. Additional details are provided below.

In Southwest Florida, observations of >1,000,000 K. brevis cells per liter (“high” concentrations) occurred in and/or offshore of Pinellas to Lee counties. Relative to last week, K. brevis concentrations decreased in parts of Pinellas County, increased in some parts of Sarasota County and decreased in others, and increased in parts of Charlotte County. In Northwest Florida, “medium” concentrations of K. brevis were observed in Santa Rosa, Bay and Gulf counties.

  • In Southwest Florida over the past week, K. brevis was observed at background to high concentrations in or offshore of Pinellas, Manatee, Sarasota, and Lee counties and in Charlotte County. Very low concentrations were observed in Collier County. For additional information, view the southwest coast report Adobe PDF and map Adobe PDF.
  • In Northwest Florida over the past week, K. brevis was observed at low concentrations in Escambia County, low to medium concentrations in Santa Rosa County, very low to medium concentrations in Bay County, very low to medium concentrations in Gulf County, and background concentrations offshore of Pasco County. For additional information, view the northwest coast report Adobe PDF and map Adobe PDF.
  • Along the Florida East Coast over the past week, K. brevis was observed at background to very low concentrations in Palm Beach County and very low concentrations offshore of Broward County. For additional information, view the east coast report Adobe PDF and map Adobe PDF.

Fish Kills
In Southwest Florida, fish kill reports were received for multiple locations in Pinellas, Manatee, Sarasota, and Charlotte counties. In Northwest Florida, a fish kill was reported in Bay County and on the East Coast, a fish kill was reported in Palm Beach County. More detailed information is available at http://myfwc.com/fishkill.

Respiratory Irritation
Respiratory irritation was reported over the past week in Southwest Florida (in Pinellas, Manatee, Sarasota and Lee counties), Northwest Florida (in Okaloosa County), and on the East Coast (Palm Beach County). For additional information, view the southwest coast report Adobe PDF, the northwest coast report Adobe PDF, and the east coast report Adobe PDF.

Forecast
Forecasts by the USF-FWC Collaboration for Prediction of Red TidesExternal Website for Pinellas to northern Monroe counties predict net southwestern movement of surface waters and southeastern movement of subsurface waters in most areas over the next four days. Four-day forecasts for Escambia to Gulf counties predict net southern movement of surface waters and net eastern transport of subsurface waters in most areas.
