Seaweed farming does not need land, pesticide, fertilisers, freshwater & does not produce waste.

Our Aims

 

Biome aims to promote our sustainably farmed seaweed as a solution toward:

  • Food security & nutrition 

  • Climate change mitigation

  • Biofuel production

  • Bioplastic production (single-use plastic alternative)

  • Maintaining health (medicine production)

  • Habitat & biodiversity restoration

  • Improving water quality

  • Supporting coastal community economies & employment through ‘blue growth’

  • Sustainable animal feeds & fertilisers (seaweed-based alternatives)

  • Additional income for fishers (through farm ownership or management)

Biome aims to widely apply our AquaSmart Offshore technology system. It will help unlock unused offshore coastline for all aquaculture farm types. The system will significantly increase seaweed production capacity to support a growing, evolving seaweed industry.

Seaweed farms provide shelters & nursery grounds for a whole range of fish, shellfish & invertebrates. They act as defacto Marine Protected Areas.
