The ocean currents that collect Sargassum also sweep up drifting jellyfish and the jellylike Portuguese man-

of-war (Physalia physalis). Feeding on its stinging tentacles, which do not harm them, are small man-of-war

fish (Nomeus gronovii). When a loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) approaches, the fleeing fish are

attacked by dolphinfish (Coryphaena hippurus).

BABY SEA TURTLES









                                                       CONSERVATION:





Safe Haven For Sea Turtles


When baby sea turtles emerge from their eggs and scramble into the sea, the young hatchlings head for

distant feeding grounds such as the Sargasso Sea, where they feast on jellies, snails, crabs and shrimp in

relative safety until they grow larger. During their most vulnerable juvenile years, seven species of endangered

sea turtles find sanctuary in the sargassum.

Camouflaged by its leafy shape and blotchy colors, the sargassum anglerfish (Histrio histrio) pulls itself
through the algae using armlike fins. To hunt, it stays perfectly still, moving only a wormlike lure on its
dorsal fin. When animals approach, it suddenly sucks them into its mouth.

                                                            SARGASSO SEAWEED





The Sargasso Seaweed is wonderful and is a floating city when out on the water. It is a city for a variety of marine life and sea turtles. As it is blown into the Gulf of Mexico on the north winds, it eventually ends up on the beach and in the bay. Most of the fish have enough sense to swim out to more of it as the seaweed hits the breakers. Some of the little creatures cling on for dear life and end up on the beach where, to the delight of the shore birds, they pick thru it and eat the little shrimp and crabs that didn’t bail out in time. The Seaweed then becomes a great natural way to keep the beach in place as it sinks down into the sand and helps to hold the beach in place. Sweeping it up to please the beach goers in the long run may have the beach goers crying “where is the beach” as the beach slowly erodes away. This seaweed has piled up on these beaches for hundreds, even thousands of years and helps to renourish the fragile beach ecosystem.
The creatures that live in the Sargasso are very unique and have adapted well to their floating city. Most of them are the same orange color of the seaweed itself.

The Sargasso fish is perfectly at home being the same color and having adapted foot like fins that crawl thru the seaweed looking for a meal. It can consume a fish the same size as itself.

The Sargasso File fish uses its file like fin to hold itself in the seaweed.

The Sargasso Seahorse and its relative the Pipefish are also that great golden orange color. There are nudibranchs and anemones, Sargasso crabs and shrimp.

Other creatures also use the Seaweed as a nursery for their young such as Southern Hakes and Butterfish and many exotic fish such as tiny flying fish are found in this unique Sargasso.

The reason this seaweed floats is that it has hundreds of tiny air filled sacs that you can pop like bubble wrap. If you pick it up on the beach just as it floats in and give it a shake you can see the little shrimp and crabs that are hiding in it. If you take a small cup to the beach with you and fill it with sea water, then shake the freshly beached sargasso over it the tiny creatures will fall into the water and you can enjoy seeing them.

Also you can help save wildlife by picking up trash on the beach and disposing of it in the trash cans provided by the city and county.

Hi Bianca,

 Very nice, we have a song called "SARGASSO Sea", very mellow and sad. Herman Melville "Moby Dick" in a certain way is our "Heritage" too. An account of Sea slavery, and the rudeness of Life in the Wailing.


               "Farewell and adieu to you noble hearties, --
                Farewell and adieu to you ladies of Spain,
                For I've received orders for to sail for the Deadman,
                But hope with the grand fleet to see you again.

                I have hove my ship to, with main-top-sail aback, boys;
                I have hove my ship to, for to strike soundings clear --
                The black scud a'flying; but, by God's blessing, dam' me,
                Right up the Channel for the Deadman I'll steer.

                 I have worried through the waters that are callèd the Doldrums,
                 And growled at Sargasso that clogs while ye grope --
                 Blast my eyes, but the light-ship is hid by the mist, lads: --
                 Flying Dutchman -- odds bobbs -- off the Cape of Good Hope!

                 But what's this I feel that is fanning my cheek, Matt?
                 The white goney's wing? -- how she rolls! -- 't is the Cape!
                 Give my kit to the mess, Jock, for kin none is mine, none;
                 And tell Holy Joe to avast with the crape.
[...]

                                                                             (Herman Melville) Moby Dick



Kind Regards

Mario

Thank you, Mario.

The Sargasso is a fascinating subject, even if most of the mystery has gone.

Hi Bianca,

I can't hide my disbelief about Atlantis in this location, nevertheless i must say they are surely to be other contemporary "Colony", City, or even Civilization, from what i just read. Thanks so very much for the link, Bianca, i would like to ask you, what do you think can happen if Atlantis was ever to be found?
 Sorry for interfering in your post, i really would like to know your opinion. Please, it only take you a minute. I promise not to do this in the future.

regards

Mario

I think that Atlantis HAS been found, Mario. 

But there is nothing marked "MADE IN ATLANTIS".

Even if it were so, there would be a lot of people, like you, who would refute any real proof.

You are convinced of your opinions and so am I of mine.
 
It's a free country and I certainly don't intend to 'convert' YOU or anybody else to what I

believe,  nor am I inclined to get into an argument over it.

BTW, why the 'attitude'?

None of the threads that you have read state: THIS WAS ATLANTIS, did they?

All the threads in this Section, you will find, explore locations in, mostly, the Atlantic. 

Yours takes care of the northermost part.  That's fine by me and everybody else.

The theories and opinions are in the other thread.

Hi Bianca2001,

I guess i asked for that, thank you anyway. I will start a new post, somewhere else.
BTW what do you mean, "I think that Atlantis HAS been found" ?

Kind Regards

Mario

Mario,

Why would you want to start a post somewhere else?  Greenland IS in the Atlantic, so it's
more than O.K. for that thread to be here.  The arguments, though, with people of different
view should be elsewhere.

Why I think Atlantis has been found?  Just an inner 'feeling'.....
