My name is Caroline Vieux and I'm coordinating the "Polynesia Mana" 
node, part of the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network. This node 
includes 7 countries of the South Pacific which are: the Cook Islands, 
Niue, French Polynesia, Kiribati, Tokelau, Tonga and Wallis and Futuna. 
I just got an email from the coral reef monitoring coordinator in 
Kiribati. One of the outer island of the Gilbert group is facing an 
Euchema denticulatum algae bloom. They imported this specie for seaweed 
farming and it is spreading out. They would like to know the reasons for 
this bloom and what they should do.
Could anyone could provide some useful information and advices? it is 
greatly needed.
