New seaweed species discovered in India

Date: 30 March 2021 Tags: Biodiversity
  • Two new red algal seaweed species, that can be a potential raw material for jelly and ice cream production, have been discovered along India’s coastline.
  • A group of marine botanists have traced these native seaweed species along the coasts of Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu and in Gujarat and Daman Diu.
  • Both varieties were discovered in Kanyakumari. The fine and hairy algae Hypnea indica was discovered in Shivrajpur and Somnath Pathan in Gujarat, whereas Hypnea Bullata grew along the coastline of Daman and Diu.
  • The researchers said that the seaweeds thrived on rocks that submerged during high tides and remain exposed during low tides at these locations.
