We are a team of chefs, creatives, and ocean farmers building a new platform for food that's just as healthy for humans as it is for our planet.

Why Seaweed? 

We envision a world where ocean farms grace shorelines - providing environmental and economic benefits to all involved.

Seaweed farming has the potential to be the most sustainable form of agriculture on the planet. It requires no fresh water, no land, no deforestation, and no feed or fertilizer to grow. 

And there are over 50,000 species of micro and macroalgae, many of which contain more vitamin C than orange juice, more calcium than milk, and more protein than soybeans. Seaweeds are also full of over 100 vitamins, minerals, and omegas.
