When in Alaska
My good friend be careful when you are up here this summer.Atleast if you go to the ocean, mainly beware of red tides, because of Dinoflagellates which are the protists that cause red tides. The red tides cause extensive kills of marine fish. Are microscopic, (usually) unicellular, flagellated, often photosynthetic protists, commonly regarded as "algae" (Division Dinoflagellata),They are characterized by a transverse flagellum that encircles the body (often in a groove known as the cingulum) and a longitudinal flagellum oriented perpendicular to the transverse flagellum. This imparts a distinctive spiral to their swimming motion. Both flagella are inserted at the same point in the cell wall, by convention defining the ventral surface. This point is usually slightly depressed, and is termed the sulcus. In heterotrophic dinoflagellates (ones that eat other organisms), this is the point where a conical feeding structure, the peduncle, is projected in order to consume food.
This dangerous things do not just kill marine animals. Red Tides usually occur during or soon after periods of heavy rainfall, and appears as an area or "slick" of discolored water. This "slick" continues to increase in thickness until it is has a syrupy consistency. There are generally two types of Red Tides, namely major and minor. A minor incident may only involve a small area and last for a few days, while a major incident can last up to several weeks and involve areas up to hundreds of square miles. There are both toxic and non-toxic Red Tides. Toxic types can result in the extermination of large numbers of marine life, and may have secondary impacts on birds and even man himself.
What you should do to prevent yourself from this horrible disease is stay away from discolored water that has hues of pink, blue, green and black as well as red. There are certain symptoms you get when you get the disease are like
