Meristotheca papulosa in Makurazaki(枕崎のトサカノリ)

Meristotheca papulosa is known as an edible alga for seaweed salad, and is harvested by fisherman using SCUBA in this season. We attended a harvest and auction event of this alga that was held in Makurazaki City Fishermen's Cooperative. It is the last harvest in this season.

枕崎市漁協のトサカノリ収穫に立ち会いました。今季最後の収穫で,約5kgを実習用に購入しました。昨年は佐多などで不漁でしたが,今年は薩摩・大隅半島の両方ともよく採れたようです。
