Raw data on the growth of mature Sargassum polycystum fronds originated from marine protected and non-protected areas (MPAs and non-MPAs, respectively) in Fiji, reciprocally transplanted between these areas and protected by cages. Growth was measured as the difference between the final (30 days) and initial frond length, measured from a standard point established using a thread when the experiment was set. Details in Dell et al. 2016 Plos One. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the supplemental document 'Field_names.pdf', and a full dataset description is included in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.
