Ululah Lagoons Management
Case study type
Objectives and works
The project has been ongoing since the 1990s. The lagoon has identified Cabomba infestation and in 2014 a small patch of Hygrophilla costata. Periodic fish kills occur in this site. There is also periodic spraying and harvesting of floating vegetation and fish kills.
Reduction of vegetation bloom in wetlands.
This project will reduce vegetation bloom in Ululah Lagoons.
Plant material harvesting appears to reduce algal growth compared with spraying.
Residents appear to be concerned with cyclic blooms of red azolla and algae.
