Kaliaperumal, N and Kalimuthu, S and Ramalingam, J R (1983) Proven Technology. 7. Technology of Cultured Seaweed Production. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 54 . pp. 19-20.



Production of seaweeds by culture practices is done generally by vegetative propagation of small fragments of some agarophytes, alginophytes and carrageenophytes. Gracilaria edulis and Celidiella acerosa reach harvestable size after 2 and 21/2 months respectively when the seaweed is harvested and processed for agar extraction. India has a good scope for starting a seaweed culture industry based on the know-how available at the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute.
