Nutrient content and stoichiometry of pelagic Sargassum reflects increasing nitrogen availability in the Atlantic Basin
Phosphorus-limited photosynthesis and growth of Sargassum natans and Sargassum fluitans (Phaeophyceae) in the western North Atlantic
Ryther revisited: nutrient excretions by fishes enhance productivity of pelagic Sargassum in the western North Atlantic Ocean
Similar high biomass strandings of Sargassum increased during the 1980s & 1990s in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM), impacting coastlines along both Texas and Florida. Research in the late 1980s documented the importance of boundary current circulation between the GOM, Gulf Stream, Sargasso Sea, & Caribbean region to nutrition, productivity & growth of pelagic Sargassum.
