Solimabi, S.W.A. Naqvi

Abstract



Some of the brown algae from the Goa Coast (India) were examined for their alginic acid content. The yield ranged from 8% to 23% of dry weight. Highest yield was obtained from Dictyota bartayresii followed by Spatoglossum asperum, Colpomenia sinuosa, Sargassum tenerrimum and the lowest from D. dumosa and Padina tetrastromatica
