The importance of sharing your experience with photos on Sargassum monitoring:
First, the photos of sargassum seaweed will help you and the community to chose your best vacation destination !
Your photos are also so useful for the people dealing with this matter:
- Because they allow us to identify which of the 60+ models in the sargassum family, are these sargassum.
- It makes it clear where the affected areas are.
- We can estimate the quantity of sargassum that has washed ashore.
- We are able to calculate the direction and time it takes them to move.
- It helps to define the recurrence of arrivals, etc…
- It makes it easier to assess the damage caused to marine flora and fauna.
- It shows the effectiveness of the resources deployed.
Whether there are few or a lot of algae, take photos/videos of the sargassum on the beach and share them on our social media.
