A few records of the economic seaweeds used for the food. medicine and industry in Korea have been summarized as a floristic list. They are systematically annotated under the currently accepted nomenclature for each species. The annotated list includes names of 164 taxa comprising 33 green, 33 brown and 98 red algae, which become ca. 25% of all species recognized in Korea. In view of marine resources, the edible seaweeds are counted 87 taxa, the medicals 54 and industrials 74, respectively. It is expected that this annotated catalog will serve as a basis for biological investigations on useful seaweeds in Korea.
Key words: economic seaweeds, food, medical, industrial uses
