Seaweed at section of North Beach known as El Riíto
Playa Norte, cubierta de sargazoí.. [+] Ver masFull article at this link
The staff of ZOFEMAT (Federal Zone agency) who clean North Beach have been busy removing seaweed that has accumulated in recent days.There are concerns about the odors it generates when it accumulates and decomposes in the heat of the sun, mostly in the area of beach known as El Riito, (That is across from Mia).
According to the workers for the State Ministry of Ecology and Environment, it is expected that in the coming days this large amount of sargasso will be removed, with assistance from the State Ministry of Tourism.
Business owners want the beach to be in the best condition possible, especially since summer vacation begins on Saturday for the schools on the 185 day schedule, whose classes resume on August 20th. Concessionaires are encouraged to increase their efforts to assist with the cleanliness of Playa Norte, which seems to have decreased in recent times when the municipal staff has been increased. This is important to maintaining the White Flag status, and for the benefit of the thousands of tourists who visit daily during the busy summer vacation season.
The reporter noted that there was a considerable amount os sargassum on El Riíto, which apparently ""has not been removed for several weeks, which is why it is generating this evil odor".
Note: This week the SEMA (Ministry of Ecology and the Environment) and SEDETUR (Ministry of Tourism) issued a press release about the sargasso which attributed the increasing amounts in recent years to the contribution of nutrients from the fluvial tributaries of the Amazon and phenomena such as climate change, global warming and current marine currents, which has resulted in a large presence of sargasso off the northern part of South America. Satellite monitoring has detected a greater presence of sargasso in the Caribbean Sea, and therefore it is expected to be arriving to the coasts of Quintana Roo in atypical amounts.
Therefore, the Federal and State authorities are working together and coordinating various actions, which include monitoring, containment of sargassum at sea, containment on the coasts, collection on the beaches, use and exploitation, and final disposal of waste.
The Ministry of Ecology and Environment (SEMA) of the Government of Quintana Roo has processed special resources to deal with this issue and on Friday, June 22, we will start the cleaning and collection works at various public beaches of Quintana Roo.
Sargassum is a natural atypical phenomenon, and is a concern of all because in large volumes it can affect the image, tourist activity and health of our coastlines.
