Abstract

The coasts of Northern Europe are richly endowed with large standing stocks of macroalgae (seaweed). This project will determine the seasonal patterns in carbohydrate, lipid and protein content in several important UK seaweed species. Seasonal variation in biogas production will also be determined.
