Didymo, aka "Rock Snot," Discovered in the Non-Tidal Delaware River (Jun 2012)
Delaware River Basin Commission.
In April 2012, Dr. Erik Silldorff, an aquatic biologist with the commission, discovered large, stalked Didymo blooms in the Delaware River over a 40-mile stretch extending from the area near the confluence with the Lackawaxen River downstream to the vicinity of Dingmans Ferry Bridge. This section of river includes portions of two National Park units: the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River and the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.
Surveys completed in May 2012 discovered both varieties of Didymo south from the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area all the way to Trenton, N.J.
