Unlike the oriental countries like Japan, China, Korea, etc. India does not have a long history about the uses of seaweeds as food and various other purposes. However, in recent years a lot of interests have been generated by the industries, academia and researchers in the field of seaweeds research and utilization. One of the most difficult job in this area is the identification of various species. This book deals with identification of some of the common seaweeds of Indian coast.
