Sustainable

Seaweed farming. 

Marine plants (seaweed) produce around 80 percent of the oxygen we breathe, meaning if they disappeared from the face of the earth tomorrow, our species would struggle to survive. 

Seaweed also provides a key habitat for marine creatures, and the first link in the aquatic food chain. Without it, the entire system collapses. Grosing seaweeds help take carbon from the oceans preventing ocean warming and reduces ocean acidicy.

Seaweed is the food of the future, available today!

Helping the Ocean and Mankind

SEAWEED FOR a healthy LIFE and healthy oceans
Green Ocean Farming aims to make our Atlantic sea vegetable selection a readily available and healthy alternative to meat, fish and intensively farmed land vegetables. We promote the goodness and health properties of seaweed and sea vegetables, which will be a much needed source of food in the not so distant future, if mankind is to survive.


By Farming the sea in this way we also offer refuge and habitat to other marine life forms in the ocean while the seaweeds are growing, allowing them to grow and re-establish depleted numbers,

Our seaweeds also help the oceans, as in green plants, photosynthesis enables seaweeds to convert sunlight into chemical energy, which is then bound by the formation of the sugar glucose. Glucose is the building block for the seaweeds’ carbohydrates and, at the same time, an energy source for the production of other organic substances that the seaweeds need in order to grow and to carry out life processes. 

The photosynthetic process uses up carbon dioxide, which is thereby removed from the water. In addition, phosphorous, a variety of minerals, and especially nitrogen are required. Oxygen is formed as a by-product, dissolved in the water, and then released into the atmosphere. This by-product is of fundamental importance for those organisms that must, like humans, have oxygen to be able to breathe. Photosynthesis can even, to a certain extent, be carried out when seaweeds are exposed to air and partially dehydrated.

Apart from offering nutritious and healthy sea vegetables, our growing process also helps the oceans, the seaweeds, particularly the Kelp absorb tonnes of man made carbon from our oceans.
