Abstract


The genus Catenella is a marine, salt-tolerant, broad, and filamentous red algae, which is widely present on mangroves and marshlands of tropical, subtropical, and temperate regions throughout the world. This review focuses on the various aspects of Catenella sp. including its habitat, variations, morphological characteristics, associations, and uses, emphasizing the ecological and economical importance the genus bears. This study also focuses on the primary and secondary metabolites produced by Catenella sp., its reproductive mechanisms, the possible techniques by which it can be grown under in-vitro conditions, and how it is a unique organism in the living world.
