    Several warnings in our area. Hopefully the cold weather front has a positive impact.

    Red Tide Status (December 8, 2017)

    A bloom of the Florida red tide organism, Karenia brevis, was observed along Lee and Charlotte counties in Southwest Florida over the past week.

    In Southwest Florida, K. brevis was observed at background to very low concentrations in three samples collected from Manatee County, very low concentrations in one sample collected from Sarasota County, background to medium concentrations in seven samples collected from Charlotte County, background to high concentrations in thirty samples collected from Lee County, and background to very low concentrations in four samples collected from Collier County.

    No wonder the fishing has been terrible in Matlacha last few weeks (along with the cold and wind)
