The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced yesterday it is teaming up with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Mote Marine Laboratory, the University of South Florida and Florida Department of Environmental Protection to look for ways to combat red tide.

ABC-7 reports the team will be conducting field experiments and focusing on using a form of specialized clay to fight the effects of the algae.

A press release from Gov. Scott’s office yesterday did not give any more details about the clay, how it would work, or even when the partnership and field experiments would begin.
