Sargassum is a floating, planktonic species of seaweed common in warm waters.
This year it is super thick and April’s bloom has been amazing. The fresh crops are beautiful and I’m still looking for a baby seahorse. There’s definitely a smelly period, but once it’s dried out the plants prevent erosion and become one with the sand.
Thanks for the explanation. Helps to have a better understanding of the what and why behind this seaweed.
