FWC reports that the Florida red tide organism, Karenia brevis, was observed at background to high concentrations in 10 samples collected from Collier County. There are also various reports on fish kill, as well as reports from staff and members on our beaches. Those with chronic respiratory illnesses such as asthma or emphysema should exercise caution when going to the beach as these illnesses may be aggravated. For more info, go to www.myfwc.com/redtide
