Development of Rope-Culture Methods for Red Seaweed Aquaculture in California


In this project, Michael Graham, a marine ecologist at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, demonstrated the feasibility of vegetatively propagating red algae for the Monterey Abalone Company, a medium-sized abalone farm in Monterey Harbor that does not use synthetic feeds in its culturing operations. The main success of the project was the ability to grow algae on 10-meter rope lines placed just outside Monterey Harbor.
