Water quality in the Indian River Lagoon is slowly improving after “brown tide” algae killed thousands of fish in March in the Banana River near Marritt Island Cocoa Beach, according to Florida Today.

Water quality data taken over the past month shows improvement, the newspaper reports.

However, scientists warn that recent water monitoring data is provisional. According to Florida Today, rain, water temperatures and other factors will determine whether the estuary will continue to improve heading into the summer months.
