FWC waives rules to help red tide cleanup effort

The investigation is part of a response to an outbreak of red tide algae bloom that has been impacting all forms of marine life off southwest Florida.

Manatee and Sarasota counties are now seeing some high concentrations, according to the FWC.

There are two very low detections of red tide south of Pinellas County, but no fish kills have been reported.

The change will speed up the removal of dead fish - regardless of bag, size, or possession limits or of season or area closures - from shoreline, inshore or nearshore areas.

This weekend, tourism business owners will be taking a stand against what is happening.

Now there's concern that the red tide that's to blame could be moving further north.

"No matter what side of the political aisle you're on, this isn't okay, and there's nobody that can sit back and say this is okay", Elizabeth Shore said.

Buisness that rely on the healthy and beauty of the water worry about the possibility of hard times to come.
