Caulerpa Conquest: A Biological Eradication on the California Coast
It was a battle for the California coast. It was fought against an invasive species, a mutant genetic form of seaweed. And it was real.
Rarely have global battles like this been won. Until now.
When the first known Western Hemisphere detection of the invasive seaweed Caulerpa taxifolia occurred in Southern California, at San Diego County’s Agua Hedionda Lagoon in Carlsbad, something had to be done to stop it.
Caulerpa Conquest is the true story of the 2000 to 2006 precedent-setting local eradication effort. It is a book inspired by missed opportunities and lessons learned from the Mediterranean Sea, where it took hold and caused great destruction.
City staff planner, designated agency liaison, lagoon foundation president, and agent for continued creative outreach through 2015, Eric Noel Muñoz is the author. Like a detective, he connects the dots from local lagoon waters to foreign coastlines, including Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, France, and Monaco.
