Physlcal and rheological properties were measured in 1.5% w/v so!utions after treatment with alkali. No significant differences were found on agar characteristics between the two sites studied. Two highest yields were obtained during summer with a maximum in June (27.8%) and mínimum during late autumn and winter (18-18.6%). Overall quality was highest in winter (November-January). when gel strength peaked above 850 g cm2• The results showed an agar of industrial quality.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/77534||ISSN:||0921-8971||Source:||Journal of Applied Phycology [ISSN 0921-8971], v. 7, p 141-144|
