The likelihood of red tide occurrence is predicated by mathematical model in coming week. Red dot(s) showing red tide occurrence(s) in the previous week. For more red tide information, please visit the Hong Kong Red Tide Information Network of the Agriculture Fisheries and Conservation Department.

The pilot forecast system is purely for research purpose. The model predicts weekly likelihood of red tide occurrence based on primitive hydrodynamic and biological considerations. The situation may vary according to different dominating algal species, variations in weather condition and other unconsidered factors.
