However, the euchheuma the thalli become, the more susceptible they are to physical damage and loss. Most of the Eucheuma crop goes to the U.

At harvest time, the whole plant is removed and new seedlings are cut from the tips. Inonly about 7 wet tonnes was harvested, compared with the peak production of 50 wet tonnes in Thus the size at which harvesting would best take place, the mature size, is different in different places, though the strain and agronomic treatments may otherwise be the same. Seasonal variation of carrageenan, total carbohydrate, protein, and lipid. The first level of sophistication might be a container in which to accumulate the Eucheuma as it is picked.

The original source of carrageenan was Chondrus crispusand this is still used to a limited extent. The farms are on reef flats or other horizontal bottoms near extreme low-water level. Some South American species that have previously been used to a limited extent are now gaining favour with carrageenan producers as they look for more diversification in the species available to them and the types of carrageenan that can be extracted.


New York, John Wiley and Sons, p. A desirable mouth feel is sometimes obtained by adding a carrageenan. Gigartina skottsbergiiSarcothalia crispata and Mazzaella laminaroides are currently the most valuable species, all collected from natural resources in Chile.

The values are for Honolulu, and the solid horizontal line indicates the mean value From the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute Report. The size of large slinosum Eucheuma thalli make it practical to handle, tie in place, tend and spinousm individuals.

Betaphycus gelatinum Figure 35 grows on rocky, coralline substrates, a few metres from the reef-edge, where it is exposed to strong wave action and turbulence. The anchor ropes may need to hold the raft below the surface at the beginning, but as the plants grow and add weight to the raft, it may need extra support such as polystyrene foam boxes tied to the corners of the raft to prevent it sinking too low in the water.

In the s, cultivation began in euchehma countries and this now supplies most of these species, with only small quantities being collected from the wild. List of seaweed traders worldwide. Perhaps they may represent the micro-form in which some species of the genus persist in “off” seasons.

Its success was related to the selection of a fast-growing strain and an automated system that together produced a growth rate ten times faster than the natural rate. A useful review of trends of seaweed production in Chile includes a diagram showing the marketing channels within Chile Norambuena, For Kappaphycus and Eucheumathe spinousm usually sell to middlemen; sometimes there may be two in the chain.


Bywith the success of cultivation of K. Publication details Eucheuma spinosum J.

WoRMS – World Register of Marine Species – Eucheuma spinosum ,

Only upstream values are given in the seasonal part of the table. Eucheuma has not yet proven amenable to gene mechanics or protoplast fusion, and the costs and returns of this may not be favorable ecuheuma an economic standpoint. Bushy thalli are formed in turbulent water, and trailing cottonii forms are found Doty where current dominates.

Thus today one uses E. Are they both carry different nutrients ingredients?
