Caribbean Sargassum Problem

This project involves solving the Caribbean Sargassum problem by preventing them from piling up and decaying. Since this is the basic problem, we will not give time to the Sargassum to pile and decay, and we will prevent it by using the following device.
The algae have considerable volume, but we have the advantage of the current, in which we will use a structure to direct Sargassum into a blade. The structure is a stationary fixed on the ground, depending on the direction of the current of the shore, then the blade will force the Sargassum to be collected in the holding storage designed by a flexible hard net that allows water to pass, but not the algae.
