Sea-farmers have grown wakame in Japan since the Nara period. Illustrationes des algues du Japon. Published in: Suringar, W. This is the type species ( holotype) of the genus Undaria.

Annual species with two separate life stages. A macroscopic stage (the sporophyte), which produces microscopic zoospores that can settle, germinate and grow into microscopic gametophytes.

Therefore, wakame has several biological activities (Table 1): . Just above the holdfast, the stipe has very wavy edges, giving it a corrugated appearance. The stipe gives rise to a blade that is broa flattened and lanceolate. The margins of the blade are . It has a distinct midrib. Undaria pinnatifida or wakame is a large brown kelp with a branched holdfast giving rise to a stipe. It forms dense underwater forests, resulting in competition for light and space which may lead to the exclusion or displacement of native plant .
