Beautiful Consett Bay

The majority of sargassum seaweed makes its way to the edge of the shore, accumulating in a huge bed up to a foot high. This affects fishing in low waters for some who toss a line, and we’ve seen two turtles a few miles along the same stretch, who lost their lives amidst the dense mass. Farm and garden wise, dried seaweed is apparently a super fertlizer and snail/slug repellent. Fnding out about the cause of the recent invasion as well as the possible beneficial uses it has to the island, is key – after all, it’s here.


In deep water, streams of seaweed appear out of the blue and float by like mustard-coloured ribbons.
