  • Sanibel Island which is said to appear apocalyptic thanks to the red tide

The ongoing toxic algae bloom is considered to be the longest red tide outbreak for the Gulf of Mexico in over a decade, and officials say it will most likely last until 2019.

Samples were collected at 19 stations spanning from the mouth of Tampa Bay to the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River.

Sally Bowman takes a picture of a dead Red fish that washed ashore after dying in a red tide on August 1, 2018 in Captiva, Florida.

"It's hard to predict more than a few days out [when it will end]", Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokeswoman Michelle Kerr told CNN.

"We've also had issues for Collier, Charlotte, and Sarasota counties too". "We will continue to support Florida's biologists to study the best ways to combat red tide, and our state wildlife and environmental professionals will aid Florida communities that are being impacted". But things like sewage and fertilizer runoff can fuel the growth of a bloom once it reaches the area.

K. brevis produces neurotoxins that can sicken and kill fish, seabirds, turtles and other marine life. Polluted discharges from Lake Okeechobee are blamed for the toxic algae problems. The toxins in the creatures can't be destroyed by cooking and freezing, and if you eat it you can get sick.

According to the NWS, beach goers should watch out for the respiratory impacts of red tide including coughing, sneezing, and tearing eyes.
