Codium fragile is a native, branching form of green algae (seaweed) commonly known as Dead Man’s Fingers!
Found along the Greater Sydney Coastlines, Codium fragile is extraordinary in its ability to produce oxygen and is an amazing ocean cleaner, absorbing nutrients and heavy metals helping our oceans stay healthy. Codium is an important part of the intertidal zone, where the ocean meets the land. It provides habitat for many different sea animals and is an integral part of the ocean food web.
“The oceans provide food, play a vital role in regulating the earth’s climate, and are essential to global commerce. The United Nations Global Goal 14 calls on countries to protect the oceans from further degradation.” (https://www.globalcitizen.org)
