Red Tide levels released show both high and low levels on beaches in Collier County.

Severely decomposed fish were reported 5-10 miles offshore of Marco Island over the December 2nd weekend, the Collier County Pollution Control said.

Winds through the weekend could produce some red tide impacts on beaches. People withe chronic respiratory illnesses should be cautious if traveling to the beach this weekend.

The next sampling event will take place Thursday, December 7th.
