“At least until the month of September, Quintana Roo will be getting tons of sargassum on its beaches, according to NASA satellite images”, said the head of the Environment Secretariat (SEMA), Alfredo Arellano Guilermo.
He added that according to the analysis of the MODIS satellite images made by NASA and the University of South Florida, the flowering of the sargassum will keep going for at least a month and a half, so it is expected to continue arriving on the beaches of this Mexican state.
Meanwhile, in Playa del Carmen, the hotel complex Paradisus recognized the work of the personnel of the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone (Zofemat) to clean up the sargassum from its beaches during the start of the summer holiday season.
Beach clean-up works are carried out under the coordination of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment (Secretaría de Ecología y Medio Ambiente: SEMA) with the support, through hiring, of local companies, and this generates temporary employment for an average of 450 people, from Monday to Sunday.
According to SEMA, 38,400 meters of coastline of Quintana Roo continue to be cleaned on the beaches of the seven municipalities where the beach clean-up works are carried out.
The algae collection is done manually, due to the fragility of some beaches and dunes of the coasts of Quintana Roo.
