Members of a United Nations workshop on invasive Mediterranean Caulerpas made much the same recommendation two months ago. They cited the 1992 Convention on Biological Diversity, which asks ratifying nations to "regulate the intentional or accidental introduction of non-indigenous species" and advised that European nations prohibit the aquarium trade or anyone else from selling or housing the invasive algae.
