Latest Algae Stories
A UNSW-led team of researchers has discovered how algae that survive in very low levels of light are able to switch on and off a weird quantum phenomenon that occurs during photosynthesis.
New research reveals how the algae behind red tide thoroughly disables – but doesn't kill – other species of algae. The study shows how chemical signaling between algae can trigger big changes in the marine ecosystem.
New research by University of Georgia ecologists sheds light on exactly what happens to coral during periods of excessively high water temperatures.
Nutrex Hawaii introduces Green Complete SuperFood Powder, which uses natural vanilla to add a delicious flavor to the combination of Hawaiian Spirulina and organic greens and organic antioxidants.
The recent blooms of the freshwater algae known as "rock snot" on river bottoms worldwide are caused by a native species responding to changing environmental conditions rather than by accidental introductions by fishermen or the emergence of a new genetic strain as widely believed
Aquatic algae can sense an unexpectedly wide range of color, allowing them to sense and adapt to changing light conditions in lakes and oceans.

Kelp forests are areas that are underwater with a high density of kelp. They’re recognized as one of the most dynamic and productive ecosystems on Earth. Smaller regions of anchored kelp are known as kelp beds. Kelp forests can be found worldwide throughout polar and temperate coastal oceans. In the year 2007, kelp forests were discovered in tropical waters near Ecuador as well. While they are physically formed by brown macroalgae of the order Laminariales, kelp forests offer a unique...
The masked spinefoot, also called a decorated rabbitfish or masked rabbitfish, lives in shallow coral rich lagoons, and seaward reefs of the Indo-West Pacific, at depths of 10 to 100 feet. The body of the masked spinefoot is a yellow-orange that gradients into a pale blue or white belly. It also has vertical blue lines toward the head and horizontal lines near the tail. A black stripe extends from the bottom of the mouth and runs through the eye. Above the eye the stripe turns to dark...
Image Credit: Dr. Wayne Meadows (NOAA)/Wikipedia The foxface rabbitfish is found in coral rich lagoons, and reefs in the coastal water of the Western Pacific. Around the western Philippines, Indonesia, New Guinea, the Great Barrier Reef, New Caledonia, Caroline Islands, and the Marshall Islands. It has also been sighted around Vanuatu, Nauru, Kiribati, and recently Tonga. Adults usually swim in pairs, but the juveniles have been known to form schools. The adult foxface rabbitfish is...

Credit: Richard Ling/Wikipedia (CC BY-SA 2.0) The truncate coralfish is specifically found in the coastal waters of Australia at depths up to 230 feet, around rocky reefs that have an abundance of algae. This fish is a species of butterfly fish that is also called the Eastern Talma. In Southern Australia the truncate coralfish is harvested largely for the aquarium trade, and is considered harmless to...
Siderastreidae is a family of colonial, reef building stony corals. Members of this family include symbiotic algae in their tissues which help provide their energy requirements. The World Register of Marine Species lists 7 genera within this family: Anomastraea, Coscinaraea, Craterastrea, Horastrea, Psammocora, Pseudosiderastrea, and Siderastrea. Corals in this family vary in form and include massive, thickly encrusting, columnar, and irregular forms. Corallites are linked by flowing...
