Overview

Sourced and written from hundreds of research papers and dozens of interviews the book chronicles, in layman’s terms, a history of the unwelcome appearance of red tide and blue-green algae in Southwest Florida’s coastal estuaries beginning in the 16th century up until the present day.

Then, using the most current available medical research, it discusses the effects of the algae outbreaks on human health, and concludes with a critical review of state and federal efforts to deal with a growing problem affecting residents and visitors.

The book is intended to inform and create a call to action by politicians and regulatory agencies before the problem overwhelms the economy of southwest Florida.
