Action not Talk!
If like us, you are passionate about the Oceans and alternative foods we'd like your help.
We are looking to expand, however setting up new Green Ocean Seaweed Farms is a costly business. From finding the right location, buying and seeding the lines, establishing secure foot-anchors to secure the lines, flotation buoys, laboratory running costs and many other hidden costs, it all adds up.
The overwhelming benefits of seaweed are starting to gather pace amongst well-informed consumers. There is a heightened demand for seaweed in all its forms, with Global Market Insights predicting that the commercial seaweed market will exceed $87 billion by 2024. It is up to brands to ensure audiences are aware of products’ provenance and have creditable scientific backing for any associated health claims
1) We are looking to establish a Seaweed Laboratory of Excellence
With the aim of cultivating a number of native seaweeds for our own use, to offer to other aquaculture businesses and to use in re-establishing seaweed forests and environments around our coast.
The Seaweed centre would also be used to train the next generation of seaweed technicians in the propagation of seaweeds and algae. Pioneering new aquaculture techniques and algae farming methods, also acting as an education centre for the younger generation to teach them about the importance of seaweed and our oceans.
2) A Seaweed processing facility.
The processing facility will bulk dry and process a variety of seaweed from Green Ocean and other smaller independent seaweed farms. The processed seaweed can then be used for extracts or made into other innovative products such as an alternative to cotton, acids such as Acrylic acid, currently made from oil and bio film, an alternative to plastic.
3) Floating Seaweed Farming
Not all seaweeds need to be grown using lines with weights on the seabed, we aim to trial a new innovative floating net system on which to grow seaweeds other than Kelp for food, medicinal use and methane reduction.
4) Integrated Multi Trophic Aquaculture
A method of Aquaculture that creates balanced systems for the environment, Farming Algae and Bivalves with the option to farm sea cucumbers, offers improved output, lower costs, product diversification and social acceptability.
