Officials are wise to seek effective solutions to deal with Cayman Islands least-favourite repeat visitor: sargassum.
Since 2011, our islands have been subjected to periodic sargassum invasions. Researchers expect that will only continue, as a warming sea breeds ever-larger blooms and ocean currents steer the occasional mats of the floating seaweed to our shores.
Beached sargassum, while generally harmless to human health, clogs our clear waters and interferes with the enjoyment of our beautiful coastline. After a short time on shore, the sodden stuff begins to smell.
