Lessonia Trabeculata is an endemic species found along the rocky subtidal zones of the southern Pacific coast, in depths ranging from 4 to 25 meters. This brown algae forms discrete forests and is considered a critical species of benthic ecosystems, where it plays an engineering and structuring role. Its extraction is an artisanal labour of singular importance for the rural areas involved in the extractive activity, generating work and socioeconomic well-being for many families. Its primary use is in the extraction of alginates.
