Large quantities of seaweed lays ashore at the Playa Los Machos beach, in Ceiba, Puerto Rico, Saturday, Aug. 8, 2015.

Some scientists have also associated the large quantities of seaweed this year in the Caribbean region with higher than normal temperatures and low winds, both of which influence ocean currents, and they draw links to global climate change.
