seaweed farming in the sea

Best seaweed farming technologies – Dutch example

Commercially viable sea farming requires high-tech machinery and management systems to optimize production.

Researchers, engineers, operators, IT developers and others need to collaborate to develop the needed equipment and find a way to make it available for all farmers. It holds the promise for more automation and valorisation in a Dutch-designed industry of sea farming. 

Requirements for seaweed farming 

  • More automated farming to conduct real-time monitoring and intervening.
  • For instance remote monitoring solutions for sea farmers to minimize cost and safety risk.
  • Conduct research pilots for new, large-scale breeding and processing equipment and machinery.
  • Robust systems, suitable for the offshore environment that will support the ecosystems.
  • Cost-effective and commercially viable systems.
  • Strategic Environmental Impact Analysis to calculate climate impact.
