Just wonderful. I thought a few years back I read an article that discussed the possibility of 'netting' or collecting this algae off shore before it reached the beaches. Something that would not impact the local fish or marine mammals, but would limit the flow of this stuff before it collected so heavily on the beaches. Was I imagining this? Not sure what other leeward and windward islands are affected by this, but last year when we were visiting Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum on there was none of this sea grass to contend with. Why is SXM affected to this degree?
