Sargassum Invasion Threatening West African Fishing, Tourism

A Sierra Leonean Scientist Dr. Salleu Sankoh, has disclosed that Sargassum series invasion has become a critical problem in the subregion, including the entire West African coast.

He said Sargassum is a serious problem because it has affected the fisheries and tourism industries in almost all of the West African countries, including Sierra Leone, Togo, Benni, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Ghana, and Togo, among others.

The Environmental Protection Agency of Liberia – EPA, this week hosted a two-day West African Regional Strategy Validation meeting on Sargassum Seaweed and Coastal Invasive Species in Monrovia.
