Products, Uses and Applications

Seaweeds and other types of seaplant have been utilised by the human race for millennia but new uses are evolving and being developed all the time. SuriaLink will be developing this section of our handbook with development as a key focus.

Zemke-White and Ohno (1999) have summarized uses by genus. Click here to see table.

In general the main areas for use and application of seaweeds, seavegetable and seaplant products falls into nine segments as follows:

SuriaLink will be continually building this section of the Seaplant Handbook. To begin with we have placed some material on the site under the "human food" or the "well being" subsections.
