I’m interested in stocking or using bio-packaging, do you have any products available?
OCEANIUM is currently in the development phase with our seaweed-based packaging materials and don’t yet have materials ready for market. Please subscribe to our newsletter to keep informed of any developments – watch this space!
I’m a seaweed farmer looking to sell my crop, who should I get in touch with?
We’re interested in hearing from new seaweed farmers as our mission is to enable the seaweed farming industry! Currently we work with brown seaweeds, particularly saccharina latissima or sugar kelp, but we’re also keen to hear from farmers who grow other species that are native to their location. Get in touch with us at [email protected].
I have a press query – who can I get in touch with?
Please email [email protected].
I’m keen to support OCEANIUM’s work, what can I do to help?
We believe that everyone can make a difference to Kelp the World! Take a look at our resources to learn more about the importance of protecting our marine environments.
I’m a student currently studying a topic which is relevant to OCEANIUM's work. Does OCEANIUM offer any work experience or research positions?
We do welcome students and offer 2-3 placements per year. These opportunities are shared on our website when they arise so please check back periodically.
We also have a library of resources which we think are useful for seaweed-related research.
What benefits does seaweed have?
Seaweed’s benefits are wide-ranging from an environmental, social, economic and health perspective. See our impact page to find out more.
Where does OCEANIUM get its seaweed from?
It is important to differentiate between wild harvest seaweed and farmed seaweed. OCEANIUM uses farmed seaweed, which is a regenerative and sustainable process that increases biodiversity, encourages responsible coastal management, and can help protect against coastal erosion by acting as a buffer against tides.
We want to work with seaweed farmers to encourage sustainable farming which helps marine life to flourish and generates “blue” economic activity in rural coastal regions.
How is seaweed more environmentally friendly than other crops?
Seaweed is a low-resource crop as it doesn’t require cleared land, fresh water, insecticide or fertiliser. Seaweed absorbs carbon and excess nitrogen which helps alleviate ocean eutrophication.
