Hawaii's Division of Aquatic Resources @dlnr administrator Brian Neilson oversees more #coralreefs than anyone else in the US. On top of that, he is an aquatic invasive species expert and is actively publishing leading science. Great leadership! https://t.co/X7MnFdWhEY

Wow google alert: "Rehabilitation of coral reefs through removal of macroalgae: State of knowledge and considerations for management and implementation" https://t.co/EFDaPBfDM2 Looks like @himb_soest and @dlnr algae-removal paper @thePeerJ is well timed! https://t.co/fhJBjziDD2

ACCEPTED @thePeerJ -- coral reef restoration and management: 19,000 kg #invasive algae removed from #Hawaii reefs with 24,000 native urchins outplanted as algae biocontrol (pre-print: https://t.co/fhJBjziDD2). A huge accomplishment for #Hawaii & @dlnr, and + for coral reefs. https://t.co/7dFRXFTNyh
