Fucus is a multicellular marine brown algae; it possess conceptacles which bears the gametes. The male gametes are borne in the male conceptacle and the female gametes are borne in the female conceptacles. Both the conceptacles are guarded by the presence of paraphysis. This paraphysis secretes the mucilage; the mucilage carries the mature oogonia and antheridia onto the surface of the receptacle.
