Red Tide and the Health of the Gulf of Mexico
This past year, we had weeks on end of spoiled beaches and fish kills. Local businesses suffered, too. Hotels, restaurants, fishermen and retail stores felt the economic impact of red tide.
The situation has left many wondering whether red tide worsening and if that's the case, then why? What needs to be done to deal with red tide in the next five to ten years? Do we need to change the way we do business in coastal Florida, based on what we saw in 2005? Those are just some of the questions we asked our guests.
