Dead fish were spotted in the area Wednesday, less than a mile from Robinson Preserve, where hundreds of dead mullet were spotted on Tuesday.
Manatee County jail inmates were brought out to help in the cleanup. They used a tractor to scoop up big piles of dead fish and get them off the beach.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission is continuing to monitor red tide conditions along the Suncoast. And experts say red tide could last all winter because blooms can continue to grow in cold water.
Officials will continue to document fish kills like the one along the Causeway.
