Red tide threatens fisheries off east China

A red tide measuring more than 100 square kilometers drifting toward east China's coastline is threatening local fish and aquaculture industries
According to local authorities, the tide, which was first detected on May 3, 2012, can suffocate marine life.
The full article, published in People's Daily Online reports that the tide has been identified as Noctiluca scientillan algae, which grows by photosynthesis and reserves energy under the water when sunshine is poor.
