WhyReef - Fun Facts
Turf algae are a very important part of the reef. They are a community of different types of filamentous (stringy) and fleshy algae. They produce much of the food that is eaten on the reef, and also provide a home for many of the small animals that live on the reef. Without them, life on the reef wouldn’t be possible!
