かごしま環境未来館の海藻観察会(Seaweed-Watching Event by Kagoshima Museum of Environment)

We had a seaweed-watching event for the public at Sakurajima yesterday as the official event of Kagoshima Museum of Environment. More than 15 people attended.

There was a lot of seaweed including Undaria, Gelidium and Sargassum. Weather was fine, and water was clear. We could see some corals from the seashore. Although our students collected Fauchea leptophylla from 10 m deep, everybody was impressed its beauty.

Next weekend, we will be having another event to make a seaweed art at Kagoshima Museum of Environment.
