    I have a question, Why is there no seaweed on the coastline of pacific coast Mexico? I am originally from Cape Cod, and know our beaches have large amounts of seaweed that wash a-shore with the tidal change. That is why I guess I noticed right away the lack of any seaweed coming a-shore on the pacific coast of Mexico. I have asked many people and cannot find anyone with an answer to this. Thanks, Jan Rutten
