Gardens or monocultures? Seaweed cultivation at the crossroads

03 July 2021

Eager to engage with seaweed, but don’t know where to begin? There is a steep learning curve for understanding the ecological nuance, economic structures, and regulatory framework for wild harvested and farmed marine algae. And there’s a huge difference between seaweed gardens and seaweed monocultures. 

Join us for a panel discussion on seaweed’s ecology, governance, economic, and cultural manifestations. We will build our collective intertidal literacy and think critically through contemporary seaweed issues, dominant aquaculture narratives, and the blue economy paradigm.
