Oil yields of macroalgae

Oil yields of macroalgae

Postby cacofonix » Sun Jan 18, 2009 10:17 pm

When algae oil yields are discussed, most of the time the discussion is about microalgae oil yields.

What about oil yields from macroalgae? It is well known that their oil content is much lower than those of microalgae, but does anyone know the typical oil contents for the macroalgae with the most amount of oil in them?
