Biome aims to promote our sustainably farmed seaweed as a solution toward:
Food security & nutrition
Climate change mitigation
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.
