Productivity of Saccharina japonica was evaluated by water layers in Gijang and Wando sea area to find the suitable farming areas for mass production of biomass. For this, S. japonica was cultivated at various depths (0.5, 1, 2, 3 m), respectively. As the result, the growths in Gijang were 225.1-261.5 cm in length, 18.5-21.3 cm in widths, 396.0-537.7 g in weights, 14.3-17.8 kg/cluster in biomass, and those in Wando were 332.0-435.7 cm in lengths, 24.6-32.5 cm in widths, 766.0-1,232.9 g in weights, 16.4-24.3 kg/cluster in biomass. It showed that the growths of blades in Wando were faster than those in Gijang. The growth rates of blades by the depths were faster at 0.5-1 m depth from January to June. After June, however, as the growth rates of blades were lower than the shedding rates of blades, it showed that the growth of S. japonica decreased at all depth conditions except 2 m depth. Productivity of S. japonica was better in Wando which is lower in the water temperature and nutrients than Gijang.
