Georgica Pond’s water quality improved last year, Dr. Gobler told the trustees, which he said was likely the result of the aquatic weed harvester that has removed macroalgae from the pond in recent summers, but dangerous blooms of cyanobacteria, or blue-green algae, occurred in Georgica Cove.

Researchers studied seven essential functions of water plants in experiments with indigenous and non-indigenous species. They looked among other things at the impact of the plants on the habitat and food supply of fish and small aquatic animals, on cyanobacterial growth and on greenhouse gas emissions. What they found was that all things considered, the two groups are not fundamentally different.
