UNAM and Semarnat have agreed to work together to collect the seaweed from the deep seas and thus prevent it from reaching the coasts.
UNAM and Semarnat propose to turn the sargassum situation into a global issue, in order to raise international interest and fight it more effectively.
Specialists from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and the Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat) will work in a coordinated way to stop sargassum, which has already begun to appear on some Mexican Caribbean beaches.
In a work meeting, held in Mexico City and headed by the rector Enrique Graue and the head of the Semarnat, Josefa González Blanco, both parties agreed on the need to take measures that allow from now on to collect sargassum in the high seas, in order to prevent it from reaching the coasts of our country.
They agreed to implement immediate actions to combat the presence of sargassum on Mexican beaches, which could increase in the coming weeks and months; In addition, they will also design joint medium and long-term strategies.
They highlighted that the presence of sargassum in the Atlantic Ocean is an international problem that affects and concerns many nations that go from the African coasts, to those of South America, passing through Brazil, Colombia, Central America, islands of the Caribbean, Mexico and even the United States.
Therefore, they explained, the phenomenon must be seen as of global concern, which combat requires the participation of the affected nations, and for which it is necessary to address it from a multidisciplinary point of view.
The concentration of sargassum on the coasts is a problem that needs to be comprehensively understood and addressed, since it affects not only the environment, but has negative impacts on aspects as diverse as public health, tourism and regional economy in general.
