Tunicate Trio

Prince Edward Island now has not one, but three different tunicate species to deal with in Savage Harbour. According to this report from CBC News, the three tunicates (clubbed [Styela clava], green star and violet [Botrylloides violaceus]) are impacting the mussel industry because the slimy marine creatures form coverings over the mussels that have to be removed before the bivalves can be sold. Mussels Marinara, anyone? :-)
