A method is described employing a primary pottery unit for seeding and growing C. crispis Stackhouse and a secondary concrete platform for support and protection. The combined units facilitate long-term studies where frequent removal of plants for observation is required and where field conditions are adverse. Carrageenan is extracted for commercial purposes.
