Abstract

Results obtaiined on the yield of alginic acid and mannitol contents of Stoechospermum marginatum carried out for one ye:ir during 1976 are presented. Young plants of S. marginatum appeared from May and June and reached harvestable size in September. The yield of alginx acid and ni'tnnitol was found to be lower than Sargassum and Turbinaria spp. The alginic add content was found to be high during the months September to Decemiber. Alginic acid content varied from 14.5 to 23.8% and the mannitol content Vc^ied from 1.2 to 2.7%.
