South Atlantic Sargassum Rulemakings

Sargassum is a type brown macroalgae (seaweed) that is found free-floating offshore in mats throughout the South Atlantic region. These mats of vegetation provide crucial habitat for a wide variety of marine organisms in the open ocean, including economically important pelagic species such as tuna, dolphin, wahoo and billfish as well as sea turtles and marine birds.


If there is a rulemaking you would like to see on this page, please let anyone in the Policy Branch know.
