Any phycologists out there?  I have vague recollections of an
alga known as the oyster thief.  Settled down in oyster beds,
grew for awhile, and became bouyant (float production?).  Larger
individuals could float a pretty good sized oyster right out
of the bed.  Can someone help me with the proper taxonomy,
or convince me that I saw this all in a bad sci-fi movie?
