Large seaweed bloom threatens seashores in Florida and Mexico
Now you can add an excellent bloom of sargassum to Florida’s present purple tide state of affairs. Having seen and smelled a number of toes of rotting sargassum on the seashores of the Yucatan, that is no bueno.
A raft of brown-colored seaweed within the Atlantic is so huge it may be seen from house.
Spanning roughly 5,000 miles — about twice the width of america — the thick blanket of sargassum floats between the Gulf of Mexico and the shores of West Africa.
Scientists say this bloom is among the largest on file, stoking fears that seaweed invasions of seashores within the coming weeks and months may very well be significantly extreme.
