Dead fish laying on the beach - effects of Red TideIn today’s #AllardPPCquickHits post, we want to point out that the recent red tide bloom off our lovely Southwest Florida coast follows the time when many residents apply their fall fertilizer and heavy rains.

We can’t help but think that all this nutrient pollution could be linked to those two events because algae, just like plants, love nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus that are abundant in lawn and garden fertilizer.
