According to Pinellas County officials, several county beach locations have tested positive for Red Tide.
This week, City of St. Petersburg officials have seen dead marine life close to shore at three city park locations – Maximo, Jungle Prada and Abercrombie Parks.
While Pinellas County is the lead agency responsible for red tide testing and cleanup, City staff will be monitoring city property and conducting their own daily cleanup. St. Petersburg areas that are currently being tested are the waters near Maximo Beach and near Bayboro (roughly between North Shore and Lassing Parks).
