Our Plan

 
 

Collect

Collect and characterize diverse sub-strains of A. taxiformis to establish the world’s first seed bank for the species.

Establish

Establish stable tank-based production of the tetrasporophyte using vegetative propagation. 

Characterize

Characterize chemical and biological attributes of various sub-strains and test their response to environmental variables.


Develop

Develop multiple methodologies targeting reliable seedstock production of A. taxiformis gametophytes for use in ocean-based cultivation.

Trial

Try novel methods of raising seaweed using submerged tube nets to integrate production with ocean-based finfish aquaculture to facilitate cultivation at scale.

Collaborate

Harvest, test and provide finished product to collaborating livestock research teams to support expanded field trials.

 
 
 

We are piecing together the mysteries of cultivation and post-harvest handling systems needed to massively scale up growing operations.
