FRENCH CUL-DE-SAC: The company in charge of the collection of the sargassum algae on the zone of the pier of Cul-de-Sac, proceeded to the cleaning of the site from Monday, May 3rd to Saturday, May 8th included.
Seaweed continues to wash up on the beaches of the northeast coast every day. The company is again at work since yesterday on the area invaded by these famous brown algae.
For the next two months, the threat will come more from the Guiana current than from the Atlantic, according to the DEAL (Direction of Environment, Development and Housing). The algae arriving from the East should be less important in the coming months. On the other hand, the equatorial zone, at the exit of the Amazon, is more and more loaded and the rafts penetrate the Guiana current.
This current is currently very strong and sends the sargassum to the doors of the Caribbean archipelago.
