  • The red tide algae is deadly to fish and cause irritation in humans

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.

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.
