Perennial chrysanthemums (agaric agaricus) and staff jaban (?) are emerging as ‘answers’ for the restoration of tidal greening, which is the biggest issue in village fishing grounds in the province.
The Jeju Special Self-Governing Province Maritime and Fisheries Research Institute announced on the 25th that, as a result of searching for seaweeds that are suitable for environments such as shallow sea areas where tidal greening occurs and can also be linked to the income of fishermen, it has been confirmed that the seaweeds and seaweeds are the most suitable.
According to the Korea Institute of Oceans and Fisheries, these seaweeds, which are popular for food and are the main source of income for fishing villages, inhabit from temperate to tropical waters, have strong root fertility, and are less devoured by pirates such as sea urchins. Ecklonia was found to be ecologically unsuitable.
The Korea Institute of Oceans and Fisheries emphasized that the results of an application test for cheoncho at one test fishing ground in Gwideok 2-ri, Hallim-eup last year showed that the transplanted seaweed grew without damage from external environments such as high waves, and showed a reproductive effect by breeding and epiphyte to the surrounding bedrock.
Accordingly, the Korea Maritime and Fisheries Research Institute has decided to gradually expand the project to create a marine forest by transplanting agaric agar and saplings to the tidal green fishing grounds.
Kang Moon-soo, head of the Korea Oceanic and Fisheries Research Institute, said, “In addition to the indoor artificial production technology for chrysanthemums and rhododendron seedlings, we have also developed a technique for securing seedlings in natural conditions.” will,” he said.
The tidal greening phenomenon began to occur in the mid-1980s in shallow waters within 7 m of water, the main working space of divers and fishermen, and recently spread to 4541 hectares, which is 31.4% of the area of 14,451 hectares of fishing grounds in the province. Correspondent Kim Cheol-woong
