[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Cultivation of seaweed is gaining interest on a worldwide scale. It is
being used as food, fertilizer and resource for chemical
constituents. Approximately 500,000 tons are being traded annually
with a value of about 1 billion US dollars. In cooperation with ETI,
Dr A.T. Critchley of the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa
and Prof. M. Ohno of the Kochi University in Japan constructed this
interactive multimedia information system on the 25-odd species of
importance to rearing. This CD-ROM contains a unique compilation of
detailed species information, an identification guide, and an overview
of rearing methods and problem solving. ETI's interactive Linnaeus II
software warrants ease of use in consulting this unique electronic
database. An interactive glossary of terms and an up-to-date
literature reference section are included.
