Thousands of dead fish wash up again in Sarasota, Florida,USA
Red tide is in full force, and it doesn’t look like it is going away any time soon.
On Thursday afternoon, downtown Sarasota smelled of rotten fish, even several miles away from the beach. This isn’t the first day it has smelled like that either, residents say.
Much like the rest of Sarasota, the stench was strong at the downtown Hyatt Regency at 1000 Boulevard of the Arts.
“The smell has been around for a couple of weeks,” said the hotel’s general manager, Marcia Dmochowski-Clark. “Yesterday I was on St. Armand’s for lunch and people were eating outside … I don’t know how they can do that.”
But Dmochowski-Clark did say that the hotel has been using an anchored buoy system to keep the piles of fish away from the marina and pool.
