5/10/19 AP: Some of Mexico’s beautiful beaches are overrun with smelly algae that’s turning the water brown Link
Question: Does Fukushima factor into this story, and how exactly?
Response from Dana Durnford:
I was reading up on this earlier today myself as I seen the headlines when I got up a few hours ago . Wikipedia claims the Sargassum outbreak started in 2011 so that is very interesting and that is when we seen the entire coast lines getting stripped of all species . It likes to cling to coral also and we known that got decimated and it likes to cling to the rocks on shore lines along with the 700 species of kelp’s and they all disappeared .
All the species have been displaced after fukushima as documented in my expeditions . Some species become pest when there is no competition for resources this is true also in kelp’s . Sargassum is normally home to many many species of marine life and a important habitat for phytoplankton and shrimp etc etc but I see no mention of that in any of the stories as I would expect those marine animals to also be in those piles on shore and see birds feeding there .
One report I read earlier today mentioned a million tons of the kelp , yet no mention of small marine life or birds feasting in it is interesting . When we see mass species die off we should expect to see some species that become pest because they have no competition . This could very well be one of those so called pest or it could be the last of the species die off . We never seen a event like Fukushima before so its very difficult to pin down what is what , my guess is its Fukushima trickle down effect .
