Transplantation of eisenia bicyclis and ecklonia cava plants to artificial substrate with adhesive



Transplantation of eisenia bicyclis and ecklonia cava plants to artificial substrate with adhesive



Japanese Journal of Phycology 38(1): 61-68



Many programs of kelp forest restoration have been in progress in Japan. In most of them, embryonic or juvenile plants of the Laminariales and Fucales were transplanted to artificial substrate. However, they often failed to establish due to grazing by fishes or invertebrates in their earlier stage. In the present study, it was tried to transplant adult kelps to artificial substrate with adhesive since grown-up plants might be resistant to the grazing. 'Aron Alpha' GEL-10 (Toagoseikagakukogyo Co., Ltd.) was chosen out of adhesives on the market and used with 'AA-Setter' (Toagoseikagakukogyo Co., Ltd.). Juvenile Eisenia bicyclis plants and adult Ecklonia cava plants were attached to concrete plates and cultured outdoors in a running seawater pool. They favorably grew and new haptera attached to substrate by themselves about 20 days after the transplantation.
