Nucleotide sequence of the cox3 gene from Chondrus crispus: evidence that UGA encodes tryptophan and evolutionary implications.
Population studies and carrageenan content have recently been performed on wild populations of Chondrus crispus and Mastocarpus stellatus, the main species with industrial use and harvested in Galicia (Spain) [21, 22].
Chondrus crispus, or Irish Moss, is an important source of mixed amino acids, magnesium, and sulfur.
An alternative to vegetative propagation was the use of artificial structures (channels, tanks) where the seaweed fragments float; in this case the system's higher technology and investment requirements led to the failure of the only large-scale experiment of this type ion a western country, cultivation of Chondrus in Canada.
This idea is consistent with the results of Dudgeon and Johnson (1992), who reported that in order for Chondrus crispus and Mastocarpus stellatus to continue to grow and survive in the same flow environment they must increase their mechanical strength, the cross sectional area of the stipe, or both, to withstand drag forces.
By grazing ephemeral filamentous algae, periwinkles facilitate colonization of larger fleshy macroalgae, such as fucoids and Chondrus crispus (Lubchenco 1980, Lubchenco 1983, Scheibling et al.
Another natural compound found to stimulate the activity of keratinocytes (that improve cell growth) and to counteract the destructive forces of oxidation is Chondrus crispus, a seaweed that grows in the Atlantic Ocean.

One is a special extract of Chondrus crispus, a red seaweed found only in the cold waters off the Atlantic coast.
The red seaweed Chondrus crispus uses an LAAO as a defense against infections by the green algal endophyte Acrochaete operculata (Weinberger et al., 2005; Weinberger, 2007).

Although clumping reduces drag in the related alga Chondrus crispus (Johnson, 2001), Carrington (1990) found only mild drag-reducing interactions between groups of up to six closely packed thalli of M.
