Record Amount of Seaweed Washing Up On Miami Beaches

North America

Aug 11. Tons of sargassum seaweed have been invading the most popular beaches, including top destinations like Cancun and Puerto Rico, and ruining travelers’ vacations— or at least their beach expectations.

These algae have also arrived in South Florida. Miami Beach has been one of the places where the sargassum has covered its white sand and pristine water, annoying tourists with its smell and unpleasant presence.

Only in June, more than 24 tons of this seaweed were collected across the Atlantic coast, a record high compared to the previous year.

The large amounts of sargassum across the Atlantic have been causing concern among authorities and experts worldwide.
