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.
