In New Zealand, the New Zealand Rowing Championships planned for today through February 18 on Lake Ruataniwha in Twizel for Open, Junior and Novice entries were on hold due to a potential algae Bio-Security Hazard. Despite wind, racing continued, and will start again tomorrow. 

Didymo, a.k.a. Didymosphenia geminata, a.k.a. rock snot is a species of algae that thrives in cold, freshwater lakes, rivers and streams. Didymo can be prolific quickly becoming problematic for fish and waterways and New Zealand is one of the countries to pass legislation to prevent further spread incorporating a Check, Clean and Dry campaign.  Didymo cells exist in many freshwater lakes, rivers and streams in colder temperatures but the blooms of this algae are different than other algae because they are made up of carbohydrate-based stalks. Didymo stalks litter the water in an their attempt to survive. Didymo blooms support the tubifex worm, host for the fish parasite Myxobolus cerebralis which causes skeletal and neurological damage in fish. To combat the spread of Didymo all entries are required to Check, Clean and Dry boats with detergent and failure to comply will be a breach of the Bio-Security Act and subject to prosecution.
