PHUKET:-- A mass of green seaweed that washed up on Patong Beach yesterday (Jan 21) is harmless, according to marine biologist Dr Jiraporn Charoenvattanaporn.

 

Over one kilometre of the seaweed was washed up on Patong Beach, sparking Patong Mayor Chalermluck Kubsub to order a big clean-up operation.

 

The mayor led officials from the Department of Sanitary Engineering and the Ministry of Public Health to the beach where they found far greater than normal amounts of seaweed on the shore.

If washed free of salt makes a good soil fertiliser. 

Nothing to see here folks...

 

That particular type of “seaweed” is a symptom of an area of sea that is saturated with fecal matter in raw sewage.

 

The “seaweed” may be safe, but the water is saturated with fecies.
