Raw data on the growth of mature Sargassum polycystum fronds transplanted into or outside Sargassum beds, crowded and isolated conditions respectively, in a non-protected area in Fiji. Growth was obtained using the initial height measurement from each ramet and subtracting it from its final height, meaning the ramets that died were recorded as negative change. Details in Dell et al. 2016 Plos One.
