[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BR1sMP9H5e4&w=560&h=315] The Gulf of Mexico, specifically the West Coast of Florida, is currently experiencing a red tide bloom that has killed tens of thousands of fish.  Red tide is a phenomena that is caused by high concentrations of toxic dinoflagellates. The Red Tide has also killed a number of manatees and is threatening Florida’s end of summer, normally booming, tourism. While Red Tide is not uncommon to Florida in the summer, the concentration of dinoflagellates in this concentration that is currently approaching, is higher than has been since in Florida 2005. Living on the East Coast of Florida, I am in the Ocean at least twice a week. However this summer I have had to skip some outings due to red tide and flesh eating bacteria. Its not a good summer for us Floridians. MORE
