'Marimo' balls washed up on a Sydney Beach. The balls are thought to be an extremely rare species of filamentous green algae. The living organisms are known in Japan as ‘Marumo’ and Cladophora ball or Lake ball in English, and are sometimes found in freshwater lakes in the Northern Hemisphere. ‘Aegagropilious’ describes the habit of free living algae (algae not attached to rocks) forming into balls. Floating algae balls are thought to be brought ashore by warmer weather and the rough wave conditions.

Green algae rules the beach — The seas off China have been hit by their largest ever growth of algae, ocean officials said, with vast waves of green growth washing onto the shores of the Yellow Sea. Large quantities of non-poisonous green seaweed, enteromorpha prolifera, hit the Qingdao, northeast China’s Shandong province. More than 20,000 tons of such seaweed has been removed from the city’s beaches.

Panjin Red Beach, China 
The Red Beach is located in the Liaohe River Delta, about 30 kilometer  southwest of Panjin City in China. The beach gets its name from its  appearance, which is caused by a type of sea weed that flourishes in the  saline-alkali soil. The weed that start growing during April or May  remains green during the summer. In autumn, this weed turns flaming red,  and the beach looks as if it was covered by an infinite red carpet that  creates a rare red sea landscape. Most of the Red Beach is a nature  reserve and closed to the public. Only a small, remote, section is open  for tourists.
