Florida red tide: What Mote is doing now

Communities affected by the current Florida red tide are asking great questions — in particular, what more can be done to address this challenging harmful algal bloom (HAB) and better protect public health and quality of life?

Mote Marine Laboratory — an independent research institution that has studied Florida red tide for decades in cooperation with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and numerous other partners — is working hard to answer that question with multiple scientific studies advancing this summer.

From October 2017 through July 2018, Mote and its partners have monitored extensively for Florida red tide designed to augment public information on the status of the bloom. See red tide press releases here: November 28, 2017March 9, 2018, March 28, 2018June 25, 2018, and  July 3, 2018.

Join our Mote scientists for a Web Forum regarding red tide and what Mote is doing. The Web Forum will be through the Zoom platform and will be available to the first 1000 registrants. After the live Web Forum, the video will be made available on Mote's Youtube page: www.youtube.com/motemarinelab. Details available here.
