Sargassum Compaction


The seas team is looking to develop an efficient way to pick up Sargassum without disturbing a large portion of sand and compact the seaweed for dune establishment. Using the efficient seaweed pickup process utilized by the Barber rakes reduces the amount of sand removed from the beaches while still effectively cleaning them. The Sargassum will then be compacted into bails to help supplement barrier dune systems.
