Where is the Sargasso Sea, and Why Does it Matter to Me?
Google it and you will learn that the Sargasso Sea, located entirely within the Atlantic Ocean, is the only sea without a land boundary.
Why is it important to our beautiful Caribbean coast?
Because it is the source of all the Sargasso seaweed we have this year. There is no consensus from the experts about why we have such an invasion this year or how long it will last. This year however it has been reported all over the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. It is smelly and ugly on the beaches and causes problems with hatching turtles, blocking there path to the ocean.
The good news it is great for fishing!
