Dear coral-listers

Florida is now going through a major toxic algal bloom (cyanobacteria). The images are shocking


The reasons are a complete disregard to basic water quality standards, and destruction of the natural flow system of the region. It's yet unclear how many fish, manatee, sea turtle or dolphins the putrid guacamole-like scum is going to kill.
