Fish Out of Water

This series is an ongoing photo documentary on the maritime phenomena, Red Tide, occurring in June 2015 along the southern shore of Long Island. Red Tide, by definition, is a brownish-red discoloration of marine waters caused by the presence of enormous numbers of certain microscopic flagellates, especially the dinoflagellates. This typically is caused from pollution within the water, and the local news is reporting that it seemingly is due to the over abundance of fertilizers in the local waters. This is causing there to be an excess of nitrogen and a lack of oxygen, and so thousands of bunker fish have washed upon the shore. More to be continued.
