Abstract Noosa Main Beach (Sunshine Coast, Australia) experienced large volumes of filamentous algae Hincksia sordid during the summer months for three consecutive years. Visually unappealing and producing an obnoxious odour, it has a significant negative impact on the local tourist-based economy. Traditional methods of dealing with the algae were unsuccessful and alternative options were generated, culminating in the trial of a seabed based curtain in 2009.
