Chondrus crispus is a relatively small sea alga, reaching up to a little more than 20 cm in length. It grows from a discoid holdfast and branches four or five times in a dichotomous, fan-like manner. The morphology is highly variable, especially the broadness of the thalli. The branches are 2–15 mm broad and firm in texture, and the color ranges from light to dark green, dark red, purple. Seven samples of Chondrus crispus Stackhouse, representing widely contrasting forms from both sides of the North Atlantic, were compared by restriction digestion of their plastid DNA.

Common names: Irish Moss, Carragheen, Carrageen, Carrageen Moss (Eng.), Mousse d'Irlande (French), Irisch Moos (German), Carraigín (Irish) Description: Cartilaginous, dark purplish-red fronds, female plants sometimes iridescent at the apices under water when in good condition (below) and turning almost completely greenish-yellow in upper-shore rock-pools (below.
Because of the ecological and economic importance of this red alga a relatively important research literature exists and one of the recent achievements in C. crispus research is the sequencing of its genome. In this chapter we review some of the literature with the aim to promote C.

crispus is the original source of this commercially used thickener. Because of the ecological and economic importance of this red alga a relatively important research literature exists and one of the recent achievements in C Cited by: In the present study, we analyze the genome of Chondrus crispus Stackhouse (Gigartinales), or Irish moss, an intertidal red seaweed, up to 20 cm long, found on rock shores in the northern Atlantic Ocean.
Chondrus is a member of the florideophytes, the largest group of extant red algae, representing 95% of known species. It is a common seaweed. The crop. The north Atlantic red alga Chondrus crispus Stackhouse (Fig. 1), which is referred to as Chondrus, Irish moss, or "moss" in this text, is the basis of a western world multimillion dollar phycocolloid industry (Levring et al., ; MacFarlane, ; Michanek, ).
However, its share of this industry has declined from ³ 75% before to £ 20% at present, primarily due to.

The Rhodophyta also comprises one of the largest phyla of algae, containing over 7, currently recognized species with. Abstract. The red alga Chondrus crispus Stackh., Irish moss, occurs in Europe from northern Norway south to North Africa.
In the western Atlantic the range is from Labrador to New Jersey (MacFarlane, ), where C. crispus is a major component of littoral and sublittoral communities (Mathieson & Prince, ; Prince & Kingsbury, ) and has been harvested for its commercially important.
Chondrus crispus (Stackhouse) is a perennial red seaweed, common in intertidal and shallow sublittoral communities throughout the North Atlantic Ocean. In the intertidal zone, C.
crispus may experience rapid temperature changes of 10 to 20C° during a single immerison-emerision cycle, and may be exposed to temperatures that exceed the thermal limits for long-term survival.
Chondrus crispus Stackhouse (Gigartinales) also known as Irish Moss is a red seaweed up to 15 cm long. It commonly occurs on rocky shores and other hard substrata, inter- and subtidally, in the Northern North Atlantic.
At some sites it is the dominant algal species but occurs also mixed with other species, for example Mastocarpus stellatus. Irish moss (Chondrus crispus Stackhouse) is a red alga that is common in Atlantic Canada.A unique strain of this species, the giant Irish moss, grows in a single location and is under strict protection.
Unlike the common coastal form, the giant Irish moss reproduces solely by fragmentation and is found in gametophyte form. Red alga (division Rhodophyta) seaweeds include dulse (Palmaria palmata), Gelidium, Chondrus, and laver (Porphyra).
Various species of Chondrus, including Irish moss (C. crispus), carpet the lower half of the zone exposed at low tide along rocky coasts of the Atlantic.

Department of Fisheries and. Overview Top of page. Chondrus crispus, commonly known as carrageen or Irish moss, is a common red alga found on both sides of the North us is widely harvested as a health food and sea-vegetable and for the production of the commercially important gelling agent, carrageenan (Guiry, ).When collected in the wild, it is often collected along with the morphologically similar.
Examples of red algae: A-D: Chondrus crispus Stackhouse, E-F: Mastocarpus major distinction of red algae is the reddish color as a result of the predominance of the pigments, phycoerythrobilin, phycocyaniobilin, phycourobilin, and phycobiliviolin in phycobillisomes, in addition to the green pigment, chlorophyll pigments.
on the red algae (Rhodophyta), where intracellular [ 52 ] and extra-cellular [ 29 ] structures have been observed. For example, in the red alga, Chondrus crispus Stackhouse [ 53 ] (Rhodophyta), it has been shown that structural color is produced by a multilayered struc-ture in the cuticle with refractive-index periodicity.
