Re: Caulerpa taxifolia
When I was doing a reef book, I followed that story and sent an email to the
Monaco Aquarium, which I had visited many years before. It sits on a cliff
overlooking the Mediterranean, pulling water up about 200 feet (I estmated)
from the sea for a flow-through sea water supply, and discharges used water
back to the Mediterranean. I had European news reports that the Aquarium was
the source of the infestation, and that it was covering over native
vegetation and removing habitat for marine animals through overgrowth. The
Director got quite angry and accused me of joining the pack of
environmentalists, whereas all I did was ask her for her point of view about
the news reports and any information she could provide about the invasion of
this exotic plant. Can't really discuss things with people who get huffy
instead of responding to questions.
