Waterways are the lifeblood of our planet, supporting countless marine species and ecosystems, while communities and families alike rely on the benefits that waterways provide. 

However, human actions have increasingly led to the degradation of these precious resources, with the proliferation of aquatic weeds and debris posing a significant threat to marine life. As awareness grows about the importance of protecting marine ecosystems, there is an urgent need to adopt non-destructive and sustainable methods to address these challenges. 

The ocean is currently facing a massive challenge in the form of Sargassum seaweed. This brown algae, native to the Sargasso Sea in the North Atlantic Ocean, has been spreading to other parts of the world, posing a significant threat to marine life and coastal communities. 

Thankfully, Weedoo, a Florida company, is at the forefront of this crisis and has been helping communities across the state deal with the aquatic weed taking over through their innovative solutions.

Founded by Tara Lordi, a passionate environmentalist and accomplished executive, Weedoo is the leading manufacturer of aquatic weed harvesters and weed cutters. The company’s mission is to provide nature-friendly and sustainable solutions for removing aquatic vegetation and debris from waterways, while preserving our planet’s natural resources.

Weedoo’s commitment to preserving our planet’s waterways extends across multiple sectors, with the company manufacturing workboats tailored to three distinct industries: aquatic weed control, environmental remediation, and silt & sediment removal. By providing specialized solutions to address the unique challenges within each of these areas, Weedoo is broadening the scope of their positive impact. 

From effectively managing invasive aquatic vegetation to mitigating pollution and restoring water quality through remediation, and even tackling the accumulation of silt and sediment, Weedoo’s diverse range of workboats are helping to create a cleaner, healthier environment for both marine life and coastal communities.

Weedoo’s flagship product, the Weedoo Workboat, is specially designed to collect and remove Sargassum seaweed from waterways. Equipped with a unique front bucket attachment, the boat can gather the seaweed and transport it to a storage area on the vessel, beach, or barge. Powered by a diesel engine, the Weedoo Workboat can collect up to 10 tons of seaweed per hour. Once collected, the seaweed can be processed and repurposed for various uses, including compost, animal feed, and even biofuels.

The Weedoo Workboat’s innovative design enables it to operate in windy conditions and navigate small, shallow waterways that larger aquatic harvesters cannot access. Where larger boats would typically damage the surrounding nature due to their size, Weedoo’s smaller form lets it operate in a much more efficient and agile way. This makes it an effective and environmentally friendly option for water weed removal in a wide range of settings.

Tara Lordi’s aspirations for Weedoo go far beyond developing state-of-the-art approaches to aquatic debris elimination. She is equally committed to promoting consciousness and enlightening the public about the crucial need to conserve our planet’s invaluable resources. Under her guidance, Weedoo has emerged as a powerful catalyst in the ongoing mission to rid waterways of aquatic vegetation and safeguard our environment for generations yet to come.

With products like the Weedoo Workboat, Weedoo is paving the way for environmentally-friendly solutions to the challenge of aquatic debris removal. By combining innovation, sustainability, and a dedication to preserving our planet’s resources, Weedoo is creating a brighter future for our waterways and the communities that depend on them.
