MARINE STUFF (10) (UPDATED 22 October ) - Next major Update maybe in December
This promotion is for the iSpot Seaweed Genus FUCUS

PLEASE give me some 'feedback' via email - dejay.project at gmail.com
.
Fucus is the tough brown Alga that frequents rocky shores all 'round the UK. It is absent from most sandy places but can be found well inshore in tidal rivers.
There are only three or four common ones and they are easily separated - check the details in Other Observations
This has a good summary http://www.seaweed.ie/algae/fucus.php
But this is all you need www.nmbaqcs.org/media/1422/mws-fucus-id-corrected-v2.pdf
.
Here's iSpot's TAXONOMY PAGE https://www.ispotnature.org/communities/uk-and-ireland/species-dictionary/NHMSYS0000568161/fucus
I don't think many people use that facility but check the Observations Tab
.
Observations in the Gallery (above) would benefit by having more agreements and comments.

MARINE Tagging

The marine tag is not used very often, nor lately by many people, but it is used to very good effect.
This is NOT Marine Habitat but Marine Organism - anything that lives and thrives in the sea below the mean HW tide line is (probably) a Marine Organism
But it seems to have gone out of fashion.

.
Perhaps spend a while in The iSpot Fucus Zone. Maybe learn from the comment trails and BE INSPIRED to post from the seaside soon
Most Marine posters add links and comments for discussion - please add supportive comments where you can.

The lead pictures may change frequently - currenetly all mine

The Seaweeds Gallery is an INVITATION one. You make the Observation, it must have more than one picture and some description notes. I will invite you to add the Observation to the gallery here https://www.ispotnature.org/communities/uk-and-ireland/view/project/733679/the-seaweed-invitation-gallery
