A small amount of C. taxifolia was recently found in a saltwater aquarium in Auckland. NIWA ((National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research) collected a sample of C. taxifolia from the Auckland aquarium, extracted its DNA, and compared its sequence with the sequences of C. taxifolia strains recorded at GenBank – the international repository of DNA sequence data. The ITS sequence from the Auckland sample was identical to that in samples from the Caribbean, and from the Red Sea, and was clearly different from that in the invasive Mediterranean and Californian aquarium strain. MFish, New Zealand (Ministry of Fisheries) has launched an education programme aimed at aquarium enthusiasts which explains the risks to New Zealand from C. taxifolia and how to identify it. is one of the seven key species that MFish is targeting through its biosecurity research contract with NIWA on the surveillance of ports and harbours around New Zealand (NIWA Science, 2002). C. taxifolia has been designated as a Surveillance Pest by the Auckland Regional Pest Management Pest Management Strategy 2002-2007. Please see Hierarchy of Plant Designations for an explanation of designation terminology.
