Floridians are accustomed to periodic red tides and fish kills. What most concerns guides and fishermen are constant blooms of brown algae (Aureoumbra lagunensis) which coat seagrass in the estuary with brown slime and kill the seagrass. For unknown the seagrass does not repopulate these denuded areas, even when growing conditions appear to be ideal. Concerned ecologists have resorted to transplanting seagrass. Results are uncertain. The estuary is THE nursery for numerous species of fish, and seagrass is THE source of shelter and food for young-of-the-year fish.
