Disgusting Problem On Mexico’s Caribbean Beaches Called ‘Alarming’ – TravelAwaits May 6, 2022

I saw this today on TravelAwaits – Disgusting Problem On Mexico’s Caribbean Beaches Called ‘Alarming’: https://www.travelawaits.com/2754564/smelly-seaweed-algae-covering-mexicos-caribbean-beaches/ Longer article.


The beaches on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula have a problem that, well, stinks. Unfortunately, it appears the situation will only get worse.

The issue is that sargassum, a type of seaweed, is washing up on beaches in Mexico’s state of Quintana Roo. In what officials fear may become record levels of sargassum, it could be catastrophic for tourist-dependent resort areas nearby.

Navy Minister Rafael Ojeda recently explained that Mexico’s navy has removed 97 tons of sargassum from the sea since February 15 and cleared more than 9,000 tons of sargassum from beaches, according to Mexico News Daily. However, he added that the navy is monitoring an estimated 32,000 tons of sargassum that is off Quintana Roo’s coast.

“We can say the current situation is alarming,” said Navy Secretary José Ojeda, according to the Associated Press.
