The success of these farms resulted in the introduction of Kappaphycus and Eucheuma to more than 25 countries, but many of them ceased farming at an experimental stage.

Nomenclatural notes The ending is treated as masculine in strixtum with the provision in the Vienna Code Art. There are two main kinds of carrageenan extracts, different according to the extraction methodology employed: Introduction of exotic species Eucheumoid seaweeds are commercially important, and their success stimulated the introduction to many countries.


Dried seaweed is normally bailed to facilitate the transportation, and even the exportation. Normally, compared to other aquaculture activities, seaweed farming is one of the lest environmentally-impactating activities, but care must be taken to avoid future difficulties, particularly when dealing with introduced species.

Rafts are frequently used in deeper waters but require boats to go to the farms. Harvesting and processing Production cycles vary from 30 to 60 days, depending on the farming region and method. The structure to keep the ropes inside the water is provided by rafts, made from bamboo, wood or PVC pipe, instead of stakes. Taxonomy of economic seaweeds with reference to some Pacific and Caribbean species.

Publication details Kappaphycus striatus F. Distributional notes Introduced in Fiji N’Yeurt et al. Cultivation of eucheumoid algae is really simple under the right conditions. It is recommended when large areas are being used. Long-lines can be used as in off-bottom, as in the raft methods, and is a more intensive cultivation process.

After harvesting, the seaweeds are washed several times with seawater to remove sediments, and sun-dried Fig. Podromus ad systematica Eucheumatoideorum: Refined carrageenan is obtained after a pre-treatment with alkali solution, followed by cooking in water.

Schmitz Doty ex P. The off-bottom method uses stakes, which hold the ropes with the propagules attached, and must be done in shallow and clean water. However, in some places, introduced species became a problem, such as in India and Hawaii, where the species began to overgrow coral reefs, and in the Phillipines, Malaysia and India, where epiphyte outbreaks induced loss of entire crops see Ask et al. This process is much shorter and cheaper than refined carrageenan process.
