Reference Number: DCDL-0000272
Two men dressed in sunglasses and fishing gear are happily fishing in a pleasant-looking river. One of them tells the other that his kids thought the rocksnot problem referred to a music album failing. Rocksnot is a algae that is currently severely affecting New Zealand rivers. It is known also as Didymo or more accurately Didymosphenia geminata.
