Red tide tints ocean off part of LA County coast

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (AP) — 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.
