Red Tide

Is the issue with the Red Tide on the Gulf of Mexico side of Florida going to cause a problem with the collecting of Dwarf Seahorses?

Anything caught in it ends up dead on the beach. The beach really stinks now. I went for a ride Saturday and headed to the beach, Not thinking,
As soon as I hit the bridge heading over the bay I thought, Ugh, must be low tide. Get to the end and tide was max high and water was brown, In the bay. Hit Gulf Blvd. and OMG I raced to the next bridge outta there!
