In the search for a healthier way of life, Europeans are seeing alternatives such like seaweeds as a way of obtaining not only the nutrients they need in a much healthier form but also food supplements, nutraceuticals and biofuel. [...] Key Method One part of this study consisted in optimization trials in the laboratory. In these trials it was evaluated different values of temperature (12oC, 16oC and 20oC), and the interaction between density (5, 10, 15 g/L) and light intensity (100 and 200 μmol m-2 s-1).Expand
Concise review of Osmundea pinnatifida (Hudson) Stackhouse
TLDR
The present work compiles the published literature on O. pinnatifida and presents a concise review on this species’ nomenclature and taxonomy, ecology, geographical distribution, cultivation, and of its biotechnological potential, namely in bioremediation, gastronomy, and pharmacology. Expand

Mass cultivation of seaweeds: current aspects and approaches
TLDR
Mass culture of commercially valuable seaweed species is likely to play an increasingly important role as a nutrient-removal system to alleviate eutrophication problems due to fed aquaculture. Expand
A preliminary study of the bioremediation potential of Codium fragile applied to seaweed integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) during the summer
TLDR
This study investigated ammonium uptake and removal efficiency by Codium fragile and found that ammonium removal efficiency was significantly greater at 20 and 25°C under irradiance of 100 μmol photons m−2 s−1 than under other conditions tested. Expand

TLDR
The regular consumption of these algae allied with the low level of seawater pollution around Azores Islands will improve human health conditions and will have a protective effect on the most common degenerative diseases. Expand

TLDR
This study supports the hypothesis that the in situ seasonal growth pattern of c. Expand
On-land cultivation of functional seaweed products for human usage
TLDR
On-land cultivation is essential for commercial success in the development of human functional products from seaweeds at industrial scales and allows the highest levels of control over quality, efficacy, traceability, and security. Expand
Screening of codiacean algae (Chlorophyta) of the Indian coasts for blood anticoagulant activity
TLDR
This work reveals that a few Codium species e.g. C. geppi produce strongly active blood anticoagulant SPS while the ones obtained from the other Indian Codiaceae species under investigation exhibit very low activity. Expand

TLDR
By adopting integrated polytrophic practices, the aquaculture industry should find increasing environmental, economic, and social acceptability and become a full and sustainable partner within the development of integrated coastal management frameworks. Expand
