When placed next to shellfish & fish farms, seaweed farms help improve or maintain water quality by absorbing nutrients from the waste produced. This is called bioremediation.

Our Mission : Seaweed

Biome will:

 

  • Be a leading supplier of high quality, traceable farmed seaweed products.

  • Operate highly productive farms, expanding operations (upscaling) to produce significant quantities of different seaweed species annually.

  • Apply sustainable & innovative farming, harvesting, processing & distribution practices, continuously developed with our academic partners, collaborators & regulatory bodies. 

  • Bring a wide diversity of farmed species to market.

  • Support kelp & marine habitat restoration projects.

Seaweed farms can increase local biodiversity, especially when combined with shellfish farms. They act as reef environments for marine life.

What are we farming?

  • We farm a range of seaweed species that are native to the UK. 

  • This includes sugar kelp, oarweed, winged kelp & golden kelp (brown seaweeds).

  • Red seaweeds will include dulse & laver/nori.

  • It is the first time some of these species have been farmed, or farmed at these scales in the region.

  • We assess all aspects of our seaweed quality. From organic certification to UK Food Standard Agency status & quantifying the range & purity of useful extracts found within our seaweeds. 

  • Our seaweed is grown offshore in clean, energetic south-west waters with a good nutrient supply.

  • Our sustainable farming methods use the latest techniques & innovation to consistently produce large quantities of high-quality seaweed without impacting the marine environment negatively.

  • We work with scientists & remote sensing technology to measure the regenerative & restorative benefits of our farms on marine life & marine habitats, such as carbon capture.

  • The seaweed can be purchased in whole form (fresh & dry) which suits a range of uses including bio-refining.

  • Our sustainable hatcheries are developed & maintained by experts in Oban, Scotland.
