Études de cas sur la gestion
Kane'ohe Bay (Oahu Is.)
Regrowth of Gracilaria occurred rapidly after an initial removal.
Waikiki (Oahu Is.)
Removal of unattached and drifting G. salicornia biomass from Waikiki was a first step for large-scale removal activities (Smith et al. 2004). A large group of volunteers was assembled to remove the floating fragments as well as the beach wash and were successful in removing a large amount of biomass of red algae from the reef and the trench. However they have yet to clear all of the drifting fragments. Smith et al. (2004) are currently in the process of designing an underwater suction device that they hope will help to speed up the process of removing drift algae.
