COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- Calusa Waterkeeper posted pictures to their Facebook page showing a dead goliath grouper on the beach.

This was on Naples Beach, south of the Naples Pier over the weekend.

The post says the fish likely died from red tide , and because of its age, it means the grouper survived last year's red tide, only to be killed this year.

The post goes on to say there were a lot of other dead fish on the beach this weekend.
