Red Tide in Southern Coastal Waters Worst in Three Years Updated: 2012-10-16 12:00:00 KST

Red Tide in Southern Coastal Waters Worst in Three Years
A vast amount of red tide algae is spreading in waters off Korea's southern coast, causing severe damage to the nation's FISH farming industry.
Korea experienced an unusually long and hot heat wave this summer, causing blooms of the algae, which is deadly to fish, to multiply rapidly in coastal areas.
This led the National Fisheries Research and Development Institute to issue a red tide alert late last week in waters off South Gyeongsang and South Jeolla provinces.
The red tide, which is expected to be the worst in three years, has contaminated several fish farms killing over 200-thousand fish.
