Seasonality of the Invasive Seaweed Gracilaria Vermiculophylla Along the Southeastern Coast of North Carolina


Abstract:
The authors discuss a red alga that has recently invaded the coastal waters of North Carolina. It has become abundant in the sounds and estuaries of the southeastern section of the state and is a nuisance for commercial fishing operations and industries drawing water from the lower Cape Fear River. Seasonal growth of the plant was studied at times of coldest and warmest air and water temperatures.
