Red tide tints ocean off part of LA County coast
MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. — The ocean off part of the Los Angeles County coast has had a reddish tint this month.
The so-called red tide was first spotted last week off the Manhattan Beach Pier.
Roundhouse Aquarium official Valerie Hill tells the Daily Breeze the color is caused by an algal bloom.
