Red Tide hangs around for Pinellas Spring Break

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is tracking a massive harmful algae bloom known as red tide that has been intensifying off the Florida coast leading to fish kills and respiratory irritation as travelers flock to the Sunshine State for Spring Break.

The red tide was initially observed in the days after Hurricane Ian impacted areas around Fort Myers and has grown throughout the winter.

The large red tide bloom this week is in Largo.
