HAB Events-Current Status

A harmful algal bloom (HAB) is the rapid growth of a toxic or nuisance algal species that negatively affects natural resources or humans. Check the current status of Florida red tide and other HABs around the state.





FWC Facts:
Red tides are not always red. They can appear green, brown or even purple in color. The water can even remain its normal color during a bloom.
