Abstract

Mariculture of the agar-yielding, red seaweed, Gracilaria edulis (Rhodophyta) was conducted in Minicoy lagoon during 1990–1992. Experiments were conducted on dry matter accumulation, effects of planting density, depth of water above culture nets, periodic cleaning for removal of epiphytes, grazing and the yield as well as regeneration of G. edulis after successive harvests to understand the optimum requirements of this seaweed. Six culture methods were tested and the yields obtained were compared to arrive at a culture method suitable for Minicoy lagoon.
