Several news outlets reported that a dead manatee was also recovered off the Florida coast, and at least one biologist found evidence the red tide may have killed a whale shark.

As part of the directive, the conservation commission will assist local efforts to save animals affected by red tide. Fanara said there was an 18-month bloom that spanned the state from 2004-2006. Bill Nelson, a Democrat who is being challenged by Scott in the November election, said Thursday that he has asked the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to determine the potential health impacts of exposure to algae that has spread in waterways along both coasts.
