In southwest Florida, where the outbreak started late last year, a testing spot in Manatee County had a high concentration of red tide.
Another testing location there had a low concentration and the rest of southwest Florida showed no signs of red tide, according to an agency map tracking the algae on Monday.
In the past year, red tide has killed massive numbers of sea creatures.
