AKUA One Year Look Back
April 20th marked AKUA's one year anniversary. We've come such a long way in this last year and have made so many incredible memories along the way. We chose to launch on Earth Day because our mission has always been to protect the Earth first. To do our part in helping her thrive each and every day through bolstering the demand of kelp and the presence of regenerative agriculture. Here are some of our favorite memories from AKUA's first year: 1. Celebrating World Ocean's Day on the UN Peace Boat 2. Launching Kelp Jerky in its first retail...

Here are a few reasons mothers love Kelp Jerky:
Kelp - Spore to Spool to Harvest
Kelp farming is something we hold near and dear at AKUA. It’s our farmers who believed in the potential of sustainable aquaculture that inspired Kelp Jerky in the first place! So, we thought we’d put together a little “how-to” for those of you out there thinking about starting your own farms!
