Regarding the equipment to contain and collect the sargassum, which has accumulated increasingly, the aim is to avoid environmental and image damage on the beaches of the Mexican Caribbean that could be reflected in the arrival of fewer tourist flows.

Among the problems that the massive arrival of sargassum implies are: reduction of light and oxygen in the sea, and the increase in the supply of nutrients that causes the proliferation of bacteria and algae, a situation that affects the reefs.

In addition, the bad smell produced by decomposition is a health risk that inhibits the arrival of national and foreign visitors.
