The cause of these bad scenes: A toxic algal bloom known as red tide.

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. Currents may push the blooms to shore and chemical conditions on the shoreline can help the algae sustain itself. The toxin affects marine life and causes respiratory irritation in humans and animals. Red tides, on the other hand, produce toxins that can harm or kill sea life.

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.
