As this debris is raked into piles to facilitate hauling, Staff wishes to remind the public to not touch or climb on the piles. Separate crews have begun to remove red tide affected fish from the Town’s canal systems as well. The FWC’s red-tide status report is updated every Wednesday and Friday afternoon. To report fish kills, call the Fish Kill Hotline at 800-636-0511.
