An algae invasion is transforming the paradisiac beaches of the Fernando de Noronha archipelago into trashy spots as the yellow-orange algae spread across the ocean surface.

The floating yellow clusters are surrounded by a spot similar to olive oil in the water, giving off a musky odor.

The floating algae formed a dense and thick block impossible to go through even with a motorboat. Under this mass, the water is darker, no sun comes through.

The algae are accompanied by a plethora of wildlife, various fish species, many juvenile animals. It’s like a floating nursery in the ocean! Awesome!

Temperature rises under the cluster of algae. Moreover the giant mass dragged trash from various regions of the world.
