Oceans 2050 have launched a groundbreaking global study that will help restore abundance to the world’s oceans while advancing climate restoration through seaweed aquaculture. Read the full article here
...seaweed is pretty essential to the life of the planet. The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says marine algae produces anywhere from 50% to 80% of the Earth’s oxygen supply, and seaweed absorbs a huge amount of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, according to the World Bank.

Coastal ecosystems sequester away surprisingly large amounts of carbon – they can sequester up to 20 times more carbon per acre than land forests. [...] around 200 million tons of carbon dioxide are being sequestered by macroalgae every year.
Every beachgoer can spot seaweed in the ocean or piling up on the beach, but Florida State University researchers working with colleagues in the United Kingdom have found that these slimy macroalgae play an important role in permanently removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Seaweed cultivation is a high growth industry that is primarily targeted at human food and hydrocolloid markets. However, seaweed biomass also offers a feedstock for the production of nutrient-rich biochar for soil amelioration. Read the full article here
To understand what our future climate will be like, the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre modelled potential climate impacts across Tasmania in the Climate Futures Project and developed Local Government Area Climate Profiles. Read about Hobart's Climate Profile here.
The Southern Ocean Carbon Company would like to pay respect to the traditional and original owners of this land, the Muwinina people, - to pay respect to those that have passed before us and to acknowledge today’s Tasmanian Aboriginal community who are the custodians of this land.
