I think the toxic musings on caulerpa have to do with C. mexicana, which I believe is toxic to fish as a defense. Anyone insterested in a good read about the problems of invasive species in our waters should read "killer algae" which is about C. mexicana basically on its path to taking over the mediteranean sea.
