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.
