Red tides at Sanibel Island in Florida have continued to leave beaches looking like graveyards, with dozens of fish and other sea life washed up on the shore. This August 3 footage shows a glimpse of one of Sanibel’s beaches, and the filmer identifies a number of creatures who have washed up to die, including flounder, mackerel and horseshoe crabs. According to the Miami Herald, Florida has been dealing with one of the worst red tides in decades, leading to many dead fish and marine wildlife. Red tide is a type of marine algae that undergoes an explosive growth and begins producing toxins. Credit: Bryanna Zachary via Storyful
