Story

Ocean farmed seaweed harvests underway

This year marks Australia’s first harvests of commercial-grade, farmed ocean seaweeds – the first in September, the second in November. Both harvests, in Tasmania, have occurred under the auspices of the Seaweed Solutions Cooperative Research Centres Project (CRC-P), funded through the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources.

Overcoming propagule supply bottlenecks for seaweed production

Asparagopsis taxiformis, a red seaweed, seems to be the most effective species of macroalgae to reduce methane production in Australian livestock. To support the Australian livestock sector to reduce its emissions footprint by adding it to animal feed, there is an urgent need and significant commercial incentive to rapidly develop next-generation ways to propagate, farm and process Asparagopsis taxiformis at scale. This project will develop micropropagation tools for seaweed farming. By using plant tissue in small amounts, micropropagation can produce large numbers of disease-free plants in a short period, using small spaces.
