NOAA Research Featured in New Film About Florida Red Tides
Much of the research and many of the scientists interviewed for the film “Guardians of the Gulf”, a 60 minute documentary that educates the public on Florida Red Tides, were funded by the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science’s ECOHAB and MERHAB Programs with staff featured in the film. The film, which discusses the causative organism, Karenia brevis, and what scientists are doing to detect, monitor, and mitigate the effects of red tide blooms, will be shown during the Sarasota Film Festival Monday, April 7. (http://www.sarasotafilmfestival.com/). It was produced by the nonprofit Essential Image Source Foundation under the sponsorship of START (Solutions to Avoid Red Tide), a community-based organization.
