Abstract

Algae are class of autotrophic organism grows in both fresh and marine environment. Marine macro algae especially seaweed being exploited as a food, animal feed, chemical, biofuels, bio oils even in cosmetics for their bioactive components. In marine habitat some seaweed act as a civil engineer and microalgae build complex community on their host seaweed or macro algae. This association sometimes becomes fruitful by maintaining food chain and increase the rate of productivity of ecosystem and sometimes it affects the growth of host organism. Investigation on association of epiphytic microalgae with seaweed is rare in Bhavnagar district coast, Gujarat, India. Thus, this investigation carried out for forming a checklist of epiphytic microalgae at Coast of Gopnath, Bhavnagar district, Gujarat, India. During this study 7 species of epiphytic microalgae were recorded on 3 different host macro algae Gelidium crinale, Chaetomorpha crassa, Cladophora glomerata. This research was makes check list of epiphytic algae in Gopnath coast and focused on the need of extensive investigation about relationship between benthic flora and fauna with seaweed and their effect on seaweed growth, phytochemical productivity rate.
