Mobilizing Marine Algae to Benefit Sea and Soil in the Pacific Northwest

This project plans to pilot a mutually beneficial collaboration between aquatic and terrestrial farms in the Puget Sound region, revolving around the removal and reconveyance of nuisance seaweed for application as a Carbon-sequestering soil amendment. This product would be used on small, direct-to-consumer, specialty crop and diversified farms and the crops would be marketed to pre-existing regional markets that support demand for climate-smart commodities.

Shellfish farmers would benefit from new revenue streams from nuisance seaweed, the value of improved shellfish health and seawater quality and the potential for new marketing opportunities and/or premiums associated with implementing a verified climate-smart practice.
