A reddish seaweed that washed up on Marshfield shores in June and gave off a foul odor is virtually gone, now that residents, the town, and the tides have helped remove it, according to Laurel Thorne, assistant director of public health for the town. “I went out this morning to do beach testing, and all the beaches looked beautiful,” she said Tuesday, getting ready for the Independence Day holiday. The Green Harbor area, where seaweed got trapped by a jetty, was hit the worst, she said, and the cleanup took about three weeks. Marshfield conducts weekly water testing during the summer at five beach areas: Brant Rock, Fieldston, Green Harbor, 9th Road, and Rexhame.
