Fucus vesiculosus covered with other algae

The bladder wrack (Rakkolevä in Finnish) is almost completely covered by other algae. The excessive growth of other green algae species is caused by eutrophication. This kind of a sight is way too common along the Finnish coast. Picture taken in very shallow water at Varisniemi, Hanko
