The Ecology Action Centre's Kelp Kurious project is helping folks learn about opportunities in the seaweed sector. Through this project, we are supporting small-scale, regenerative seaweed farming and small-scale seaweed product entrepreneurs to help develop community-based economic opportunities and sustainable sources of income.
Why seaweed? Now is the time to rethink our relationship to the ocean and how we produce seafood. Who has access to marine resources? Who benefits? What are the impacts? How can local communities be at the forefront of rebuilding resilient economies? We are excited to demonstrate how seaweed farming can be a small part of a sustainable, diverse and resilient coastal economy.
