Seaweed.  Frequently Asked Questions

What is seaweed?seaweed

Seaweed, also known as gulfweed or sargassum, is a free-floating algae found in warm coastal waters. Seaweed provides crucial habitat for a wide variety of marine animals in the open ocean, as well as onshore for animals like sea turtles and marine birds. Fortunately, there have been minimal landings for the past two seasons.

When is seaweed season?

Seaweed season on the Gulf Coast fluctuates as Mother Nature sees fit. However, seaweed typically washes up on Galveston's beaches May through July.
