    If you collect them offshore you will have collateral damage with turtles and other endangered species. If you collect them onshore you have toxicity problems and you're too late. (Try to put some in your fridge and wait 1 day..., meanwhile you can go and buy a new fridge) If you dry it you need to have it dry within a few hours, otherwise you could exterminate a whole town. Suppose you could dry it, imagine your energy bill. Another way to stabilize it is fermentation with micro-organisms by gathering them in oxygen free kind of silage. Then they remain stable while wet. I have some laying for 3 years, they haven't changed, even not in color. But then the question is what to do with it. Can't use them as animal feed or fertilizers because of too high arsenic levels. Industry don't want them, even in 🇨🇳...

    Don’t mind the sarcasm but it’s probably from all the garbage being dumped into the ocean . 🤔

    They failed to mention how many thousands of species depend on the sargassum for survival

    The weed is thriving on sewer and waste being dumped in the sea.
