Hi Jaime,

Marine algae is not my best subject but, here are some ideas:

A good book on marine biology should be able to help.

You might also try books on algae specifically like:
Introduction to the Algae. Structure and Reproduction. H.C. Bold and M.J.
Wynne. Prentice-Hall, Englewood Cliffs, NJ. 1978.

You might also try field guides to the area, they often contain algae as
well as the animals that live there.

I did a quick search on the internet and found this:
not much but it might give you some direction.

Good luck,
Bob Cooper
