Field Notes
A group of GMRI staff went through the remaining downeast samples from the joint VS/DMR Dasysiphonia monitoring project. We had fun over lunch but it also looks like there is no Dasysiphonia farther downeast within DMR's sampling plots (a good thing!) Blue team's sample: Mean Low water depth for Shabbit Is site was 16ft, weight of sample was 136.25
Supporting Evidence

(Posting for the blue team) The red algae we found in our sample was not filamentous or hair like and therefore we no do think it was dasysiphonia.

The sample that we found was much thicker than dasysiphonia. The branches were not unicellular and therefore the sample is not dasysiphonia.
