Seaweed & Macroalgae
ABO works to advance the use of algae of all types including macroalgae (seaweed). On this page we maintain a list of resources about seaweeds, seaweed products and other macroalgae applications.
Some general information on all aspects of seaweeds: http://www.seaweed.ie/
The Sea Grant network has established a National Seaweed Hub to serve as a science-based, non-advocate resource for the domestic seaweed and seaweed aquaculture industry. This collaboration provides a framework to share information, address challenges, identify needs, and find opportunities in this emerging industry.
