Red Tide Research: Here’s the Latest at Mote – with Kevin Claridge, Mote VP for Sponsored Research & Coastal Policy | Episode 073

If you live in Florida for any length of time, there are two words you really don't want to hear and that is -- Red Tide.

Red Tide kills our marine life, disrupts our tourism industry, and is literally a stinker of a problem.

Most everyone knows it's been around for centuries but is there anything that can be done to at least reduce its impact on our ecology and our economy?

Fortunately, one world-class organization right here in Sarasota is fighting to find the answers.

I'm very pleased to welcome Kevin Claridge - Mote VP for Sponsored Research & Coastal Policy.

In today's episode, you'll learn...

  • What we definitely know about Red Tide
  • How the state of Florida and Governor DeSantis are funding research to help mitigate this Red Tide's impact on Florida
  • Recent mitigation testing techniques
  • ... and much, much, more!

I'm so glad you stopped by today as it is my hope you will listen ... learn ... and connect!
