The dolphin die-off continues with almost one hundred dolphin carcasses washing ashore along the panhandle over the last two weeks.

Ron Hardy, the owner of Gulf World and the on-sight coordinator for the dolphin die-off investigation, took samples from two animals at Crocked Island Sound.

The dolphins had been dead for a while, and Hardy says it's still important to identify and research each carcass.

He says current results of samples are showing a high level of bio-toxin present in each animal.

Red tide is once again thought to be the culprit, according to Hardy. The exact strain and location of the toxic blume is still unknown.
