    The use of algae as food, fodder and manure dates back to many hundreds of years. Seaweeds have also been associated with important industries like agar-agar, alginic acid and iodine, to mention a few. Though Japan takes a lead in the utilization of seaweeds, other countries like China, Malaya, Indonesia, Burma, Siam, Borneo, the Strait Settlements, Indo-China, Australia, Hawaii, New Zealand, Chile, etc., use algae for food as well as in the preparation of agar-agar and other industrial products.
