Officials: Cedar Key safe from red tide

A red tide bloom in the Gulf has killed thousands of fish in the last two weeks, according to state officials, but Cedar Key is proving unaffected.
Leslie Sturmer, a University of Florida aquaculture specialist in Cedar Key, said Monday that test samples for red tide toxins in the area’s shellfish have yielded good results.
“There are zero cells in the samples, as we suspected,” she said, adding that 5,000 or more cells per liter in a sample would cause shellfish operations to close shop.
