In the last couple of days we have noticed a distinct red streak in the ocean waters.  From the research I´ve done on’line, it tells me this is a ¨bloom¨of phytoplancton or other algae.   It´s effect on the fish and crustaceons  is toxic and if they are harvested during a ¨red tide¨ they can be toxic to humans.   The appearance of the red tide is fairly infrequent but in the last couple of days, it has been very prominent.
