Abstract: Scientific research plays a crucial role in the development of seaweed harvesting, cultivation, processing and utilization. There is a clear and ongoing need for research and development to enable an economically and environmentally sustainable seaweed industry in the Pacific, including Fiji. The major focus of this study was to assess the growth and morphology of cultured Caulerpa species in the field and to determine the effect of key environmental parameters (temperature, light intensity and salinity) on its growth in the laboratory.
