Barbados battles sargassum seaweed through innovation

A new and innovative approach to harvesting sargassum seaweed is now under way at Consett Bay in Barbados, and is expected to generate employment and economic benefits for the island.

That approach would see sugar cane loaders and conveyor belts being used to harvest the seaweed from the beaches and sea. It will be taken to the Barbados Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation (BADMC), where it would be spread across ten acres of land to aid in the production of food crops not usually found in Barbados.
