I've experienced "red tide" or algal bloom on the beaches in Florida. It was about 10 yrs ago and the beaches were covered with dead fish and eels.
It was very unpleasant and difficult to breath standing on the beach near the water. It wasn't the dead fish smell that made it unpleasant though,
something in the air was irritating my throat causing me to cough.
Looking at these pictures makes me suspect that this red tide may be something other than algal bloom. The woman standing with her child on the beach
doesn't appear to be in any discomfort (breathing normally) and I'm betting she wouldn't be standing there with her child if it was difficult to
breath. There are no dead fish in the pics either. The color doesn't seem right either, red tide caused by algal bloom isn't that bright but it
might just be a different type of algae.
Very strange indeed....
