Field survey at Cape Sata（佐多岬で調査）
I conducted the field survey for Meristotheca papulosa at Cape Sata. Local government and municipal officers also attended. Meristotheca papulosa is one of the famous edible seaweeds in Kagoshima Prefecture. As the result of the harvesting and anthropogenic activity, there is a great possibility that these resources will decline. The management of this resource has strongly been required.
