    Abstract

    Macroscopic marine algae popularly known as seaweeds and the submerged marine flowering plants commonly known as Seagrasses constitute marine primary producers. Seaweed beds along the rocky coasts and the extensive meadows of seagrasses are the most productive ecosystems in marine environment. They are immensely capable of sequestering dissolved carbon dioxide at faster rates and their role in containing ocean acidification in particular and in mitigating the climate change impacts are well understood. Seaweeds consist of taxonomically distinguished groups of Chlorophyta (green seaweeds), Phaeophyta (brown seaweeds) and Rhodophyta (red seaweeds).
