    Seaweeds are marine macroalgae consisting of taxonomically distinguished groups of Chlorophyta (Green seaweeds), Phaeophyta (Brown seaweeds) and Rhodophyta (Red seaweeds). They are generally found attached to rocks, pebbles or other aquatic plants in the intertidal or subtidal regions of the sea. Seaweeds are the natural source of phycocolloids such as agar-agar, algin and carra2eenan. A number of tropical seaweeds including green algae (Ulva, Enteromorpha, Monostroma, Caulerpa) brown seaweeds (Dictyota, Laminaria, Cladosiphon, Padina) and red seaweed (Gracilaria, Porphyra, Eucheuma) are eaten directly (sea vegetables) for their minerals, vitamins, proteins, essential amino acids and low fat content.
