Ocean solutions to carbon

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint 

                 It's not just about us, it's about future generations and keeping our oceans alive

Here at Green Ocean Farming, we actively promote the seaweed culture, seaweed aquaculture and all aquaculture linked to benefiting the seas and oceans, often running alongside seaweed farming.

We are looking for sponsors to support the emerging seaweed farming industry and allow us to establish new seaweed farms and help  fund the following projects listed below. If you are a business looking to counter your carbon footprint and understand Blue Carbon, here's a positive and proactive solution. 

Seaweed sequesters nitrogen, phosphorus, and carbon, meaning seaweed farms are carbon negative.

A donation, investment or sponsorship no matter how small would be greatly appreciated and help offset your companies carbon footprint through green carbon.

1Green Ocean Farming is actively engaged in Kelp Forest restoration and rejuvenation, we aim to restore kelp forests or beds that have been damaged or destroyed by bad fishing practises, natural occurrences and other manmade actions. If you have an interest in kelp or want to offset your carbon foot print through kelp sequestering, please contact us.

2) Open a specialised macro-algae research laboratory aimed at propagating seaweed and to study the suitability of other native seaweeds, such as Ulva, Dulce, Wracks and Irish Moss for farming. This will be a Centre of Excellence where new innovative methods of propagation can be realised, training the next generation of seaweed technicians in the ever evolving science of macroalgae farming around the world. We aim to open the facility as an education centre to the younger generation to learn about the importance of ocean health and the role seaweed plays in the oceans, the positive effect it has on the environment and, more worryingly, what would happen to planet earth if the seaweed dies! £500k

3)  To trial deep sea seaweed growing platforms, using our own unique and eco-friendly design, to grow a number of seaweeds well away from land, utilising the vast space of the ocean, reducing the need of restrictive licencing and interference from other man made activities. A more cost-effective way of growing large amounts of seaweed (both brown and red seaweeds) in the deep ocean with an option for farming shellfish at sea at the same time. Investments of £180k are required  .

4) HTC or Hydrochar, an innovative method of making much needed eco fertilisers from seaweed. The world is running out of phosphagen and nitrogen which will have a major impact on food production and feeding the world in the coming years. Our Hydrothermal Carbon fertiliser is made by using high pressure water at a high temperature that retains over 95% of the carbon in the seaweed. The end product or HTC fertiliser is an environmentally friendly alternative to man made environmentally damaging nitrogen fertiliser. If you are interested in getting involved please email enquiries@greenoceanfarming.com  

5 ) Help coastal communities in various locations around the world by setting up sustainable seaweed farms and Biochar businesses using seaweed (mainly Sargassum)  Local seaweed farms provide a food and income to local communities, waste seaweed made into Biochar can be used to improve soil locally or sold for profit. Seaweed biochar is an amazing way to capture carbon from the ocean.. Investments opportunities are available at a price of £30k per unit.

6)  Trial alternative aquaculture, such as sea cucumbers grown beneath our seaweed or fin-fish farms, so reducing or neutralising the negative impact of fin fish farms on the seabed and environment through innovative and cutting-edge aquaculture. We are seeking investments of £80k-200k to initiate this project

Seaweed is an amazingly healthy, sustainable, food source, it is also being used to make alternative food packaging, alternatives to plastics and to make Bio-Fuels. It can also be used to reduce methane emissions from Cattle and can be used to make Biochar, an alternative to cotton and fibre for cloth.  

However, in 20 to 30 years time, unless we start growing seaweed now, there will not be enough seaweed to meet demand. If you want to get involved and help sponsor, donate or invest in our capital opportunities please contact  alec@greenoceanfarming.com
