Abstract

The harvest and export of Iridaea laminarioides Bory, the dominant species in the intertidal communities in southern Chile, have increased significantly in the last five years, reaching 15% of the total Chilean production of marine algae in 1985. Of this 15%, 48% is harvested from the X Region (SERNAP, 1985).
