Red Tide remains

Dead fish deposited on the shore of Padre Island as a result of HAB - harmful algae bloom. Caused by an overpopulation of a marine algae, the over-abundance of toxins paralyse the nervous system of fish and they are unable to breathe. That bottle gives some scale. However, I didn't even notice it until I transferred the photo to the computer.
