BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — Smelly seaweed is starting to pile up on some Brevard County beaches.
Sargassum isn’t toxic, but it can be unpleasant as it collects and rots along beaches.
The brown seaweed also benefits marine life and that’s a good thing because it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere fast.
Once the seaweed reaches shore, it’s considered beach wrack and can help anchor sand dunes.
The south beaches in Brevard County have been spared, but areas near the port are still blanketed with the brown seaweed. Both the Canaveral Port Authority and Brevard County said they don’t plan any special removal.
