Abstract/Summary

Sargassum is the most abundant brown algae among those covering the submerged rocks of Talin Bay. The community of the Sargassum beds was represented by the frequency of occurrence of the associated seaweeds in the Sargassum beds over a nine-month period of study. Six species were found to be associated with the Sargassum beds. Five are green algae: Acetabularia sp., Caulerpa cupressoides, Halimeda macroloba, Halimeda opuntia and Rhipidosiphon javense and one brown alga, Padina sp. Biomass of Sargassum was correlated with associated macroflora and it was observed that the frequency of occurrence of Halimeda opuntia, Padina sp. and Rhipidosiphon javense was inversely proportional to the biomass of the Sargassum plants where one increases, the other decreases while the frequency of occurrence of Acetabularia sp., Caulerpa cupressoides, Halimeda macroloba showed a direct relationship to the biomass of Sargassum due to the shaded condition brought about by the canopy of Sargassum.
