Seaweed Solution to Reduce Methane Emissions from Livestock

Agriculture's Impact

Agriculture is the third-largest source of man-made greenhouse gas emissions—and cattle production is responsible for fully two-thirds of the sector’s global warming footprint.


The problem is largely due to methane, a powerful greenhouse gas produced by microbes that live in ruminants’ guts. Methane is over 80 times* more potent than carbon dioxide in trapping heat and is responsible for nearly a quarter of man-made global warming. The problem is only set to worsen as livestock production increases by an expected 50 percent by 2050.


Integrating seaweed culture with ocean-based fish farming to improve the diets of ruminant animals may be one of the most effective systems to combat climate change.
