Carrageenan properties and proximate composition of three morphotypes of Kappaphycus alvarezii Doty (Gigartinales, Rhodophyta) grown at two depths
Cited times in Scopus
Three morphotypes (brown, green and red) of Kappaphycus alvarezii grown at two depths were evaluated for carrageenan properties and proximate composition. The green morphotype was significantly different from the brown and red in all carrageenan properties except for sulfate content at 50 cm below the water surface; and significantly different only from the brown at 100 cm. Except for ash content and nitrogen free extract there were no significant differences in proximate composition (nitrogen, crude protein, crude fat, crude fiber) among the three morphotypes.

Navigating risks and uncertainties: Risk perceptions and risk management strategies in the Philippine seaweed industry Suyo, Jee Grace; Le Masson, Virginie; Shaxson, Louise; Luhan, Maria Rovilla; Hurtado, Anicia Q. (Elsevier, 2021-04)The Philippine seaweed industry is affected by multiple but interrelated risks. Farmers mainly encountered environment-related risks (e.g. disease, pest infestations) which, if unmanaged, could result to production failure. ...
