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 kappapgycus outbreaks induced loss of entire crops see Ask et al. Emerald Isle Organic Irish Seaweed. There are several cultivation methods: Seaweed coursescookery courses, and much more in Co. Introduction of exotic species Eucheumoid seaweeds are commercially important, and their success stimulated the introduction to many countries.

Kappaphycus striatus (z) Doty ex :: Algaebase

Cultivation of eucheumoid algae is really simple under the right conditions. Carrageenan extraction procedures There are two main kinds of carrageenan extracts, different according to kaplaphycus extraction methodology employed: Algaebase striztum sponsored by: Harvesting and processing Production cycles vary from 30 to 60 days, depending on the farming region and method.

Selection of adequate sites, environmental monitoring mainly related with etriatum bio-dispersionand quarantine protocols must be made to guarantee the success of the activity. Homotypic Synonym s Eucheuma striatum F. The fibers are then dried and ground in the same way of semi-refined carrageenan. The seaweed residue is removed by filtration and the carrageenan is recovered from the solution by precipitation with isopropyl alcohol, or by repeatedly freezing and thawing the gel until water is totally eliminated from the carrageenan fibers.


:: Eucheuma cultivation

This process is much shorter and cheaper than refined carrageenan process. World-wide electronic publication, National University of Ireland, Galway.

A family business producing seaweed as supplements, cooking, gardening and bath products. Status of name This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically. University of California Publications in Botany Schmitz Doty ex P. Podromus ad systematica Eucheumatoideorum: Welcome Q and A What are seaweeds? In semi-refined carrageenan extraction, clean seaweed is cooked in an alkali solution to improve the gel strength, and then washed several times and laid out to dry in the sun.

It is recommended when large areas are being used. Site maintained by M. Seaweed farmers can sell the collected biomass to stackers, or the bales directly to traders who will forward the production to exporters and international processors. 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. It is based on vegetative propagation.

Stuhlmann; Hamburg Doty Detailed distribution with sources Click to Load. However, semi-refined carrageenan has different applications than the refined carrageenan: Refined carrageenan is obtained after a pre-treatment with alkali solution, followed by cooking in water.

This last methodology has been very effective in Brazilian cultivation. After harvesting, the seaweeds are washed several times with seawater to remove sediments, and sun-dried Fig.


Type information Type locality: Guiry – There are two main kinds of carrageenan extracts, different according to the extraction methodology employed: Long-lines can be used as in off-bottom, as in the raft methods, and is a more intensive cultivation process.

Key references Doty, M. Cultivation methods Cultivation of eucheumoid algae is really simple under the right conditions. Later, the alkali-treated material is ground and sold as seaweed flour.

The structure to keep the ropes inside the water is provided by rafts, made from bamboo, wood or PVC pipe, instead of stakes. Click here for copyright information and contact. Tissue age as a factor affecting carrageenan quantity and quality in framed Kappaphycus striatum Schmitz Doty ex Silva.

The off-bottom method uses stakes, which hold the ropes with the propagules attached, and must be done in shallow and clean kappapuycus.
