Re: Colour of the Sea
Algea is a micro organism plant life and given the right conditions reproduces rapidly and can spread to many square miles,these can be easily seen by satellite imagery, any large blooms are generally investigated for any risk to human or fish life.
But this algea bloom can be seen on the surface of the water, when you go fishing it a distinct colour of browny-red, and for sure it puts fish off the feed, because they move away from it. I still say it is silt, there has been a lot of cliff erosion, lately due to heavy rain falls, particals of mud, sand, lime stone and chalk will travel miles. It the only thing that will change the colour of the sea, and that at the bottom, on the sea bed, apart from weather and clouds. andyc40, i hope the next time you go there, it will be as it was, let us know.
You should have fished here, last week.
