Surveys were started by Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute during 1958 to estimate the available seaweed resources in the Mandapam area. Varma and Krishna Rao (1964) made two surveys (a preliminary one in 1958 and the other detailed one during 1 962-63), covering a total area of 234.25 sq km between Dhanushkodi and Hare island. The entire area surveyed was divided into 3 sections, namely Krusadai section. Hare Island section and Outside section. Since very little algae of economic value were present, the Outside section, was not taken into consideration.
