3D Ocean Farming

The Least Deadliest Catch

Imagine a vertical underwater garden: seaweed and mussels grow on floating ropes, stacked above oyster and clam cages below. Imagine a farm designed to restore rather than deplete our oceans.

  • More Biodiversity, Higher Yields

    By using the entire food column, our farm model has the capacity to grow 20 tons of sea vegetables and 500,000 shellfish on each acre per year.

  • Zero Inputs

    Since there is no need for fresh water, fertilizer, or pesticides, restorative ocean farming is the most sustainable form of food production on the planet.

     

  • Food Security

    As a food crop, seaweed is rich in nutrients such as protein, calcium, and vitamin-C. Recent studies demonstrate that a network of seaweed farms the size of Washington State could produce all of the dietary protein needs of the human population.

     

  • Energy Security

    According to the US Department of Energy, a network of farms totaling an area half the size of Maine could grow enough biofuel to replace all of the oil used in the US.

Restorative Impacts

Growing Ecosystems

Our farms use restorative and foundational species that provide habitats for hundreds of marine and bird species.

Our farm model creates natural reef systems that harbor hundreds of wild species.

Mitigating Climate Change

Our farms create barriers that mitigate the impacts of storms, while growing kelp that soaks up five times the amount of carbon as land-based plants.

Preventing Dead Zones

Nitrogen pollution has become a crisis in many areas, causing algae blooms and decreased oxygen levels from their subsequent decomposition.

Our farms sequester nitrogen and limit the potential for algae blooms.
