No red tide at present. Follow Mote Marine Lab daily beach reports: visitbeaches.org
Unfortunately, this particular red tide bloom has lasted almost 10 months. No one can predict how long it will last or if it will move up the coast. The loop current generally doesn't favor that movement, but it has happened in the past.
Red tide has not been a factor on any of the Pinellas County beaches. No one can predict movement, severity or direction. Even in the southern counties, the counts have been dropping.
Wondering the same...we are due to come at the end of September. As of today, MOTE was reporting some dead fish, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Pinellas County is spared the worst of it, and hope that some real change can happen for SW Florida to prevent this tragedy from happening again.
