Gracilaria and Porphyra are the most exploited commercially. Commercial cultivation through seaweed farming is recommended.
ArticleAQ Hurtado-Ponce -
Botanica Marina, 1990 - Walter de GruyterPreliminary field culture of Gracilaria using vegetative fragments inserted between braids of ropes suspended vertically inside a floating cage was undertaken to assess the daily growth rate and monthly yield as influenced by three different spacing intervals. Daily growth rate of cuttings at 10 cm intervals ranged from 0.6 to 7.2% with yields of 11 to 415 g m-1 line1, those at 15 cm from 1.4 to 9.1% with yields of 18 to 502 g m-1 line-1, and at 20 cm from 1.7 to 10.5% and with yields of 20 to 379 g m-1 line-1. Both growth and yield were minimum in December at all spacing intervals but maximum in April at 10 and 15 cm and in February at 20 cm. Results of the analysis of variance (ANOVA) showed a non-significant interaction between spacing interval and culture month on daily yield of Gracilaria. This indicates that the effect of spacing interval on the daily growth rate and monthly yield was not significantly influenced by the culture month; likewise the effect of culture month did not differ significantly with the intervals used. The main effects, however, of spacing interval and culture month to daily growth rate were significant. Yield was significantly affected by the culture month but not by spacing interval.
