Starting October 1, federal officials will be issuing Red Tide forecasts for the Gulf of Mexico.
The forecasts will be updated twice a week.
Red Tide is a toxic algae bloom that can kill fish, Dolphin and Manatee, close shell fish beds and cause serious respiratory problems for some people.
All of these effects are found in one form, or another when there is an outbreak of the Red Tide in Florida Gulf Waters.
Scientists at NOAA will be in charge of issuing the forecasts two weekly. They will use data developed by a number of commercial and government scientific data sources.
