Call To Further Explore Potential of Super Seaweed Condrus Crispus Stackhouse

The red alga Chondrus crispus Stackhouse, more commonly known as Irish moss can be found along the coasts of the north Atlantic Ocean. A versatile organism, it can be used for a variety of purposes including the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry. 

But despite being a vital source of food ingredients for thousands of years, very few research has been conducted on the polymorphous algae. This study carried out by Thierry Chopin attempts to provide a  broad and extensive look at the biology of C. Crispus to encourage further research and development.
