Dear all
I first asked you what could be the conditions for raising seaweed in Seychelles' water
Thanks to everybody that answer me and for the good
I find this question interesting since a friend of mine ask me about the possibility of growing algae in seychelles and
I am discovering an unknown world !!!
but first of all I have to say that is a study case an not yet a real project
I am still trying to understand what is the way of identifying local species that could present good potential
I try to establish a pocedure to follow to understand what is important to consider to raise seaweed and where I can find information on species.
for ex looking through litterature I have found some references on different algae of Seychelles and wonder if they have potential?
(espacially those from Gracilaria sargassum hypnea  and gelidium gender)
any help  or advice on which direction to follow would be nice
