Blood-red water near Canada Place likely from algae blooms

[Canada] The bands of blood-red water that appeared to be flowing from the bow of a cruise ship moored on the eastern side of Canada Place Wednesday were likely from algae blooms, say authorities at Port Metro Vancouver.

“We’ve had a lot of reports today of red algae blooms in the Burrard Inlet,” said John Parker-Jervis, a spokesman with the port authority.

He said the port had received no reports of diesel or oil spills in the inlet on Wednesday.

The foul-looking substance seemed to be floating just below the surface of the water in the late afternoon.
