    We would have incredible dunes if the "seaweed" were not removed!
    This is nature - embrace it.
    What's next - don't like the seagulls, pelicans, etc?

    What about the people living downwind of where the city just 'buys some land' and 'dumps' seaweed?

    From an economic point of view seaweed is bad, from an ecological point of view it's good.
    Which one normally wins out on this island. Just asking............

    Exactly. The seaweed is free and helps the island. I don't see any loss of visitors here either. Our island is completely packed this summer. The tourists trash is more nasty than the seaweed.
