Abstract

The first documented Florida east coast Gymnodinium breve red tide is attributed to an unusual Loop current pattern. Satellite and ground data indicate that the November incident was seeded by a red tide detected in late September 1972 in southwest Florida waters; southwest inshore waters flowed directly south through the Florida Keys, carrying low to moderate concentrations of G. breve which were concentrated and transported to the east coast by unusual current configurations.
