Diversify the economic activity linked to the S. Martinho do Porto Sea, through the sustained exploitation of the endogenous resources – the marine red macroalgae. Two common species in the area, Gelideum corneum and Asparagopsis armata, an autochthonous species used for many years and an invasive species, will be studied. The project aims to develop new products taking into account the physical-chemical properties of each species.
