CCRES's insight:

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.

Qualitas says drawbacks of open pond algae cultivation easily dealt with

Qualitas says drawbacks of open pond algae cultivation easily dealt with | Algae | Scoop.it
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.”
CCRES's insight:

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.

Algae: The New Antibiotic? - Modern Farmer

Algae: The New Antibiotic? - Modern Farmer | Algae | Scoop.it
A Michigan startup is harnessing it as a feed additive to address the pervasive problem of unnecessary antibiotics use on healthy animals in factory farms.
CCRES's insight:

To the average observer, algae may look like a slimy mess. But in the green-tech world, they’re versatile workhorses that can be converted to biofuels, air purifiers and electricity.

CCRES's insight:

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.

CROATIAN CENTER of RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES: Fucus Treatments

CROATIAN CENTER of RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES: Fucus Treatments | Algae | Scoop.it
CCRES's insight:

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.
