Red Tide Status (December 19, 2014)
Karenia brevis, the Florida red tide organism, was found in background concentrations in one sample collected alongshore of Lee County and in background to very low concentrations in two samples collected offshore of Monroe County.
Additional samples collected throughout Florida this week did not contain K. brevis.
Due to the holiday, a red tide status report will not be posted next week. The next red tide status report is scheduled for posting on Friday January 2, 2015.
