Abstract: Macroalgal blooms are becoming a problem in many countries worldwide. Climate change is further exacerbating this problem. This study looks at the individualistic effects of temperature, nutrients and the combined effects of temperature and nutrients on the growth of two pest macroalgae namely Sargassum polycystum and Gracilaria edulis under laboratory conditions. In the temperature phase of the experiment, the biomass and rhizoidal length of the seaweeds from Makaluva Island were measured.
