Project MACROSEA finalised; innovative solutions and applicable results for seaweed farming!

Hortimare B.V. Breeding & Propagating Seaweed

Cultivation of the oceans is required to meet demands for food, feed, materials and energy for a growing global population. Norway, with one of the world’s longest tempered and productive coastlines, can take a leading role. With MACROSEA (2016-2019), Norway has created an interdisciplinary knowledge platform on macroalgae production biology and technology, to make significant steps towards industrialization. Hortimare participated by performing tests in Norway on its testsite at Solund, Norway.

The project was funded by the Research Council of Norway.
