Texas Parks and Wildlife Monitoring Red Tide at Port
Texas Parks and Wildlife officials are continuing to monitor the possible red tide at the Port of Brownsville.
Red tide is an overgrowth of algae in the water that produces toxins that are lethal to fish and can cause respiratory problems for humans. According to officials, no airborne threats for humans were reported out of the port because of the minimal wave action. Samples are being gathered by Rangers in an effort to solve the issue.
