The executive director of the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute is calling the algae blooms in our water “a crisis.”

Jim Sullivan also said there’s a good chance we’ll have another eruption of algae blooms in Lake Okeechobee this summer.

He also said there’s a severe problem with coral reefs being attacked by a disease. He said they’re trying to find what’s causing it and how to treat it.
