Green algae invade east Chinas tourist destination

Green algae invade east Chinas tourist destination

Chinese kids swim in the water covered by seaweed at a beach resort in Qingdao city, east Chinas Shandong province, 14 July 2011. The algae hitting the beach areas of Qingdao is only a minor part of the current 410-square-km green algae in the Yellow Sea, being blown by a southward wind, according to the North China Sea Branch (NCSB) of the State Oceanic Administration. The algae, though not toxic nor detrimental to water quality, ravages the ecosystem because it consumes large quantities of oxygen, thus suffocating other marine life. Shandong Province suffered a severe green algae invasion in 2007 and 2010 that decimated its aquaculture and cost millions of yuan.
