Another $1.9 million in federal funding will go to Mote Marine Laboratory to study red tide.

U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan on Friday announced funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

“Mote Marine works tirelessly to counter red tide and improve Florida’s water quality,” Buchanan said. “I will continue my push in Congress to deliver resources to fight the plague of red tide and protect Southwest Florida’s environment.”

Funding comes from NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science Competitive Research Program. Mote President Michael Crosby will oversee spending.
