Thank you for participating in the Sargassum Watch project. Your observations and input mean a lot to us.

The Marine Macroalgae Research Lab at Florida International University (MMRL-FIU) is part of a network in the Caribbean Region dedicated to monitoring the invasions of pelagic Sargassum on Caribbean beaches. Your observations will help us gain a better understanding on how Sargassum is affecting our coastal areas.

Our citizen science project is part of a greater international collaboration of academics and professionals studying the Sargassum phenomena in the Atlantic Caribbean Region, including the Sargassum Monitoring ©. We are open to other organizations and professionals using our data. If you choose to use our data from Epicollect5, please send an email to Ph.D Lowell (lipor001@fiu.edu), and mention the “Sargassum Watch” Citizen Science project.
