Mote Marine Lab opens first-of-its-kind red tide mitigation technologies testing facility

The Florida Red Tide Mitigation & Technology Development Initiative, led by Mote Marine Laboratory in collaboration with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, is moving closer to finding the technologies and strategies that could be deployed for mitigation efforts during future blooms. Governor DeSantis publicly opened a state-of-the-art recirculating seawater facility located at the Mote Aquaculture Research Park where partnering scientists and engineers from around the country are testing mitigation technologies before they are deployed in bays and coastal waters in order to ensure they will do no greater harm to these ecosystems that the red tide itself.
