It will be interesting to see if the hurricane will stir up the water in this area where the red tide is and disapate its denseness. It may even get rid of it totally for this season. I was shocked to see ocean bottom dissolved oxygen at < 2 ppm. Even the lower end of the Hood Canal out in Washington which has a big problem in this natural fiord with extremely low DO is nothing like what Florida has. Anyone know how big the tides are on the west coast of Florida? Maybe there is not enough currents in this area of Florida. With little tide or strong prevailing winds areas of such warm water are perfect breeding grounds for red tide and all the natural marine devastation that comes with it.
