Caribbean Matters: Sargassum seaweed continues to spread

Sargassum seaweed is back, and massive amounts of it continue to create major problems across the Caribbean, impacting people’s health, the environment, and the tourism industry. The situation is not new, yet in spite of efforts by governments and international agencies, the effects are worsening.

“Caribbean Matters” first covered the sargassum story in August 2022, and it is time to revisit. This month, multiple news agencies have tackled this issue.

Caribbean Matters is a weekly series from Daily Kos. If you are unfamiliar with the region, check out Caribbean Matters: Getting to know the countries of the Caribbean.
