Sargassum in Florida does not disappear in the winter

The most worrying thing is that the phenomenon did not disappear when temperatures fell during the winter months. The economic losses of sargassum on tourist beaches in the Caribbean and Mexico are enormous. In 2019 it is only reaching a hotel occupation of 50%

The impact in Florida is not important yet. Tourists and residents complain about the smell where the sargasso accumulates. They also complain about the yellowish appearance of water on some tourist beaches, usually crystalline.

Sargasso in Playa del Carmen – Mexico

Christopher Columbus in the fifteenth century had already reported floating islands of algae in the center of the Atlantic (sea of ​​the sargasso). But now they have increased their density and quantity alarmingly

Sargassum smells when it concentrates large amounts and decomposes. The sargassum releases a gas called hydrogen sulfide and smells like rotten eggs. This can be problematic for people with respiratory problems.

Consequences for Marine Fauna.

In the open sea, sargassum serves as a habitat and refuge for several marine animals. Fish and dolphins are often seen around the floating floating islands of sargassum. But it also hinders the ability of some marine species to move and breathe.
Seaweed can also smother corals and seagrasses if large numbers die and sink to the bottom of the ocean.
