Impossible to answer - read some of the other threads on this issue
From late Fall and winter when the water is much cooler it doesn’t normally happen.
Actually, the typical red tide blooms occur from October to February. From the Florida Fish and Wildlife website: Karenia brevis blooms occur in the Gulf of Mexico almost every year, generally in late summer or early fall. They are most common off the central and southwestern coasts of Florida between Clearwater and Sanibel Island but may occur anywhere in the Gulf. Blooms are less common but do occur along the southeastern Atlantic coast as far north as North Carolina. Most blooms last three to five months and affect hundreds of square miles, but they can continue sporadically for as long as 18 months, affecting thousands of square miles.
