Codium fragile ssp. fragile is a large branching green alga which typically grows between 15 to 60 cm tall but can attain almost 1 m in length and weigh up to 3.5 kg. In wave exposed areas the C. fragile ssp. fragile plants tends to be shorter as they undergo more frequent fragmentation (D’Amours & Scheibling 2007).
