The Sunshine City and its sparkling waterfront parks have become the center of Tampa Bay's Red Tide crisis. Rafts of dead fish are washing ashore more quickly than crews can gather the carcasses. Workers have picked up 477 tons of dead marine life from the coastline in recent weeks, according to Mayor Rick Kriseman. That accounts for the overwhelming majority of more than 600 tons picked up across Pinellas County. Scientists continue to detect high levels of Red Tide through much of the bay, with no sign of immediate relief on the horizon.
