Out for a ride this morning on Coffeepot Bayou in St. Pete, and the smell from red tide is overwhelming. Be careful out there this weekend folks. pic.twitter.com/zy5614fNDl— Eunic Ortiz (@eunicortiz) July 1, 2021
Our @StPeteFL crews have collected more than 10,000 dead fish (6 tons) along our shorelines and waterways in the past week. This cleanup impacts our level of service in other areas, but we recognize the importance. As fish continue to wash up, we'll continue our efforts.— Dr. Kanika Tomalin (@StPeteTomalin) July 8, 2021
