Abstract

Culture of agar yielding red alga Gracilaria edulis was carried out in fibreglass tanks by providing running seawater and aeration under a shed with transparent roof. The seed material was pretreated for 12 hours at different concentrations of growth promoters IAA, IBA, GA, Ascorbic acid, EDTA and Inositol. In general, more increase in growth and biomass was obtained in the plants pretreated with lower concentrations of these growth promoters.
