Scientific American tells the story of Bren Smith, owner of Connecticut-based Thimble Island Oyster Company, and director of the organization Greenwave, who started growing kelp and shellfish as a reaction to several crises he faced in his own life: overfishing, climate change, and rampant unemployment in the fishing industry. He was working on the Bering Sea when the cod stocks crashed, and he lost oyster crops to both ocean acidification and two hurricanes. Based in part on the research of Dr. Charles Yarish at the University of Connecticut, Smith’s 3-D ocean farming model uses the entire ocean column to grow as many different foods as possible in as small an area as possible.

AlgaePARC is a large multidisciplinary research program based in Wageningen, Netherlands, which integrates the entire microalgal process chain. AlgaePARC educates professionals for microalgae-based production processes. Students learn to describe microalgal metabolism, to apply basic design principles for photobioreactors and to cultivate microalgae.
P A L M A R I A P A L M A T Ais a cold water algae species that is found in the middle to lower shore in many parts of Europe and the North Atlantic Coasts of America. It can grow in depths of up to 20m on both exposed and sheltered shores. It is found growing on rocks and on the stipes of L. hyperborea and Fucus serratus as an epiphyte.
Qualitas Health, a supplier of a unique polar-lipid structured algal omega-3 ingredient, is now at full scale production and is participating in what an executive calls “the future of omega-3s.”
We grow the algae in open ponds, so sunlight is the source of energy. It is an agricultural technology, so you are at the mercy of the elements. But there are ways to mitigate that by holding inventories of different intermediates, whether it is the harvested algae or the extracted oil.
Instead of algae, Joule's “industrial photosynthesis” model is based on a proprietary strain of cyanobacteria. Although commonly referred to as blue-green algae, cyanobacteria is not an algae. It is a single-cell bacteria but it ...

Photosynthesis uses light from the sun and carbon dioxide from the air to make chemicals that can be converted into energy-rich biofuels. Plants, however, transform less than five percent of the solar energy they capture into harvestable chemical energy. The New Mexico Consortium and Los Alamos National Laboratory are working on strategies to improve the energy yield in algae and plant systems, resulting in more fuel in our tanks and more food on our plates, without releasing additional carbon into the atmosphere. Dr. Richard Sayre tells the story.
We are entering a new era of agricultural production. This new cycle requires increasing technical skills, more natural solutions and fewer pesticides, antib...
Olmix is a leader in the use of macroalgae to develop nutritional products for humans and animals. This video tells about their plans to feed a world of nine billion people using seaweeds as primary ingredients for health and nutrition. The company’s global aim is “to create a healthy food chain based on algae.”

Dr. Josh Axe shares the health benefits of Spirulina, the blue-green algae that is one of the top superfoods in the world today. Its nutritional profile is loaded with chlorophyll, B Vitamins, Vitamin K and minerals such as zinc and magnesium. It is also a great source of quality protein if you aren’t getting enough in your diet.
Our best source of biological iodine and our best protection against thyroid disruption is to body-load with iodine contained in iodine-rich whole raw seaweeds as regular daily consumption. If our bodies have an ongoing full complement of I-127, we can better resist taking in incidental I-131. This means that eating seaweeds regularly in the diet, especially the big northern kelps, to provide both dietary iodine and protection against the ongoing I-131 hazards. No land plants are a reliable natural source of iodine.
