A word-wide overview is presented of the current state of mass cultivation of seaweeds. In comparison with a total annual commercial production of fish, crustaceans and molluscs of about 120 × 106t, of which one-third is produced by aquaculture, the production of seaweeds is about 10 × 106t wet weight; the majoirty of this comes from culture-based systems.(More)
Tank cultivation of marine macroalgaeinvolves air-agitation of the algal biomassand intermittent light conditions,i.e.periodic, short light exposure of thethalli in the range of 10 s at the watersurface followed by plunging to low lightor darkness at the tank bottom andrecirculation back to the surface in therange of 1–2 min.

A field population of Ulva pseudocurvata Koeman et C. Hoek (hereafter termed Ulva) at Sylt Island (North Sea, Germany) exhibited biweekly peaks of gametophytic reproduction during the colder seasons and approximately weekly peaks during summer. The reproductive events lasted 1-5 d and were separated from each other by purely vegetative phases. Under(More)
The coast of Jiangsu Province in China - where Ulva prolifera has always been firstly spotted before developing into green tides - is uniquely characterized by a huge intertidal radial mudflat. Results showed that: (1) propagules of U. prolifera have been consistently present in seawater and sediments of this mudflat and varied with locations and seasons;(More)
Commercial cultivation of the dioecious brown macroalga Hizikia fusiformis (Harvey) Okamura in East Asia depends on the supply of young seedlings from regenerated holdfasts or from wild population. Recent development of synchronized release of male and female gametes in tumble culture provides a possibility of mass production of young seedlings via sexual(More)
Sargassum horneri (Turner) C. Agardh is an important canopy-forming seaweed native to the northwestern Pacific coast growing in the upper sublittoral zone. In this study, the chloroplast genome of S. horneri was fully sequenced and compared with three other brown algal chloroplast genomes. The S. horneri chloroplast genome is 124,068 bp in size with an(More)
Sargassum horneri (Turner) C. Agardh is one principal member of the ecologically important brown seaweeds that form submarine forests in the northwest Pacific coasts. However, no microsatellite marker has been available for S. horneri to our knowledge. In this study, eight polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated for the first time from S. horneri(More)
Sargassum hemiphyllum (Turner) C. Agardh is a common low intertidal brown alga in the northwestern Pacific, and two varieties (var. chinense and var. hemiphyllum) of this alga have been determined based on morphological and molecular data. In this study, we present the complete mitochondrial genome of S. hemiphyllum var. chinense. The circular-mapping S.(More)
Turbinaria ornata (Turner) J. Agardh is a perennial brown alga native to coral reef ecosystems of tropical areas of the Pacific and Indian Ocean. Very little is known about its organellar genome structure. In the present work, the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of T. ornata was determined and compared with other reported brown algal mtDNAs. The(More)
Sargassum muticum (Yendo) Fensholt is an invasive canopy-forming brown alga, expanding its presence from Northeast Asia to North America and Europe. The complete mitochondrial genome of S. muticum is characterized as a circular molecule of 34,720 bp. The overall AT content of S. muticum mitogenome is 63.41%. This mitogenome contains 65 genes typically found(More)
