Waters of coast of Guangdong, China, infested with a dark red algae

Chinese officials reporting on August 18, 2011 say that nearly 100 kilometers of waters off the coast of southern Guangdong province have been infested with a dark red algae that is spreading as the water temperature rises, with thousands of fish that have died so far due to oxygen-deprived suffocation.
