The harvesting of algae, entrusted exclusively to women and handed down from generation to generation,
is the third voice of the economy on the island.
They are grown in real "sea gardens", inside small lagoons protected by the reef.
Once collected, they are dried and then sold mainly to the cosmetics market.
