sargassum seaweed

September 20, 2014

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen sargassum seaweed.  The brilliant blue Atlantic Ocean has such a different feel, smell, and color than that of the Pacific.  Sailing over the dark blue long-period waves and working among humpbacks, kelp patties, and Japanese tsunami debris is my typical science cruise.  It’s good to be back east and to be reminded of the profound, yet subtle differences of these two great oceans. -Ernie Aaron

  1. In different ocean we have found different aquatic plants and life; they are also used in different ways especially aquatic plants are used as fertilizers and medicines etc. Here we have seen Sargassum seaweed it was found very rare in the Atlantic Ocean and nearby and this is really useful in fertilizer purposes as due to its nutritious value.
