Owing especially to intensive aquaculture in recent years, marine red algae of the family Gracilariaceae have become the major source of agar in the international market. However, because of a high degree of morphological similarity among gracilariacean algae, and morphological plasticity within populations, identification and classification of these algae are often problematic. These difficulties greatly complicate assessment of natural agarophyte stocks, and may raise problems for regulatory… CONTINUE READING
