Abstract

The seaweed Gracilaria edulis is a fast growing agarophyte and its distribution is confined to Tamil Nadu, Andaman-Nicobar islands, Lakshadweep group of islands and Chilka lake along the Indian Coast. In Lakshadweep, it has been reported growing abundantly in the islands of Agatti, Kavaratti, Kalpeni and Kadamath while in Minicoy it was totally absent till recently. In 1990 this seaweed was transported from Mandapam (Gulf of Mannar) and Kavaratti islands (Lakshadweep) to study the feasibility of its establishment and colonizing in the lagoon in Minicoy.
