Or that you are just content remaining uneducated. There's a plethora of information available on the damage that Caulerpa has done to regions around the world. Even to the extent that local fish species have become poisonous to humans because the fish have built immunity to the toxin and store it in their flesh. Someone in this thread suggested how great it would be if we could work out how to get Snapper to eat it. I think you'd find it's quite the opposite unless your desire is to eliminate the Snapper fishing industry. https://cisr.ucr.edu/invasive-species/caulerpa-taxifolia-or-killer-alga#:~:text=The Problem%3A The invasive strain,are contained in its foliage. https://www.mpi.govt.nz/dmsdocument/51427-Questions-were-frequently-asked-about-exotic-Caulerpa-and-its-management https://www.nzgeo.com/stories/killer-algae/ There's 88ha of the stuff in Blind Bay. 88ha! Can you comprehend the amount of marine life that has been displaced? This is like North Korea taking over the suburb of Herne Bay, and enforcing their rule of law, while those that live in Wellington sit back and ask what's the actual problem with this. 1 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
