Why Seaweed? 

We are a for-profit company inspired by  GreenWave, a nonprofit that trains unemployed fisherman to become ocean farmers of seaweeds and shellfish.

Seaweed farming has the potential to be the most sustainable form of agriculture on the planet. It requires no fresh water, no land, no deforestation, and no feed or fertilizer to grow. 

And there are over 50,000 species of micro and macroalgae, many of which contain more vitamin C than orange juice, more calcium than milk, and more protein than soybeans. Seaweeds are also full of over 100 vitamins, minerals, and omegas. 

 
Kelp is the culinary equivalent of an electric car.
