More than 60 marine macro algae species have been characterised from West Nusa Tenggara including 36 Rhodophyta, 18 Phaeophyta and 34 Chlorophyta. Many of these species are of economic importance as source of foods and industrial products which some are commercially cultivated using different· cultivation system. Many others, mostly naturally inhabitant non-cultivating spesies, retain bioactive compounds which are of potential UV protectants, skin moisturizers and growth promoting substances. Exploration and· morphological characterisation of West Nusa Tenggara marine macro algae will be discussed. Potential species as sources of foods, hydrocolloid, alginate, UV protectant and skin moisturizer as well as growth promoting substances have been screened and characterized. In addition, improved cultivation and post-harvest methods to increase production and quality of commercially cultivated species have also been developed and introduced in several commercial seaweed production centres in West Nusa Tenggara. Prospects and challenges in macro algae cultivations to support the West Nusa Tenggara “PIJAR” programme will be discussed.
