The Gracilaria species are a major source of food-grade agar. The seaweed is both harvested from the wild and farmed for commercial applications. On farms, they are grown on ropes. A wide range of Gracilaria species have commercial uses. About 30,000 tons of Gracilaria species are produced a year, one-third of this from South America. China was one of the first countries to cultivate Gracilaria species.
