Title

A Critical Analysis of Macroalgae Farming Using the Kappaphycus alvarezii Species and Its Impact on the Environment

Abstract

One of the forms of seaweed that is grown in greenhouses at an exceptionally high rate is called Kappaphycus alvarezii. This kind of seaweed may be grown with very inexpensive and straightforward equipment, and the subsequent processing of the collected product needs just a moderate level of expertise. Red algae, sometimes referred to as Rhodophyceae, are tiny algae that have the potential to grow to enormous heights. The ingredient particle is responsible for giving algae their recognisable red colour. Other variables, such as the location and the cultivation technique that is used, which in this case may support the growth and production of seaweed, also contribute to the long-term success of the company. Seaweed is an important component of the business. The development of K. alvarezii seaweed is significantly impacted by both fertilisers and the physicochemical features of the coastal waters. These factors include temperature, saltiness, sunshine, and the directions in which the water is flowing (current). In addition to having uses in the food, beauty product, pharmacological, bacteriological, and medical companies, carrageenan is also a component of fertilisers and an additive for containers in the paper, fabric, photographers, shoe polish, lasagna, and oreochromis niloticus and lamb bottling industries. The primary organism responsible for the production of carrageenan is K. alvarezii.

Conclusion

According to the findings of a search that was derived from multiple literature reviews, the essential factors that have a significant impact on the production of K. alvarezii microalgae are the underwater environmental components such as minerals and the health complications of the waterbodies such as warmth, moistness, sunshine, and hydraulic gradient (current). Due to the significance of these parameters, we heartily advise to cultivators that they utilise water temperatures that are compatible through the prerequisites of K. alvarezii seaweed.
