Abstract

we created a germplasm bank for 3 different populations of the giant kelp in the coast of Chile and assessed its viability after 5 years in suspended state. There are ever-growing pressures to harvest the giant kelp for abalone aquaculture and kelp stocks need to be managed in order to main the genetic biodiversity. It is known that in Chile there are at least 3 genetic population of this species. We created a successful framework to preserve these genetic populations.
