Abstract: The species composition of algal assemblages inside territories of the damselfish Stegastes nigricans was examined from Nananu-i-ra Island, Fiji and Rarotonga, Cook Islands. A total of 32 algal species were identified, the majority of them Rhodophytes (24 species). Seven species were unique to Rarotonga, six were unique to Fiji, with the remaining 19 species recorded at both locations. The biodiversity of territories was similar at both locations. The red alga, Herposiphonia secunda, was the most abundant species found, comprising 40.33% ± 3.51SE and 33.94% ± 3.58SE from Rarotonga and Fiji respectively. Gelidiopsis intricata, Polysiphonia sp., Aglaothamnion cordatum, and various Cyanophytes were also abundant at both locations. As a group, filamentous algae accounted for 70.35% of the algae found within the territories at all sites. It is suggested that if Stegastes nigricans are actively weeding their territories, they are selecting filamentous algae, and particularly Herposiphonia sp. and Polysiphonia sp.

Abstract: Macroscopic algae epiphytic on mangrove pneumatophores were surveyed from two climatically contrasting mangrove communities in the Ba and Rewa River mangrove swamps on Viti Levu, Fiji. Seventeen taxa, including 13 Rhodophyta, 2 Phaeophyta and 2 Chlorophyta were recorded. The most frequently occurring species is Dictyota bartayresiana, followed by Chlorodesmis hildenbrandtii and Caloglossa leprieurii. Two genera normally associated with mangroves in other regions were absent in Fiji: Catenella and Murrayella. Compared with other studies in the Indo-West Pacific region, Fiji has the lowest number of mangrove-associated algae and a greatly reduced number of mangrove species. On a localized scale, however, variations in climatic conditions (between Ba and Rewa) do not seem to affect the associated algal epiflora, and no mangrove host-specificity is apparent.

Taxonomic Descriptor(s): Meristotheca procumbens
Abstract: The edible Rhodophyte Meristotheca procumbens P. Gabrielson et Kraft (Gigartinales, Solieriaceae), found for the first time outside of its type locality of Lord Howe Island, Australia, is described from the island of Rotuma, South Pacific, where it is a favourite food item in the Rotuman diet. It is characterized by a procumbent thallus and stellate cortical cells. It is unclear why this species does not occur elsewhere in the southwest Pacific and possible biogeographic hypotheses are discussed.

ASFA Subject(s): Human food, Distribution, Identification, Nutritive value, Minerals, Chemical analysis, Algae
Abstract: A chemical analysis of the edible algae from the island of Beru in Kiribati revealed it contained relatively high concentrations of Mg2+ and Ca2+ ions. A fair amount of protein and other minerals such as Na+, K+, Cu2+, Mn2+, Zn2+ and Fe2+ ions are also present in it. The scientific identification revealed that the algae are made of a mixture of different species, none new species. In fact, the two major types of algae that were identified (Lyngbya perelegans and Chroococcus minutus) are known to exist in Hawaii, some areas in Europe and parts of South East Asia.
