Check Out WHOI’s Webinar on Seaweed Aquaculture


The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is hosting a virtual discussion this week on kelp and aquaculture.

“As our climate continues to change and food insecurity persists worldwide, scientists and others are looking to solve these problems without harming marine ecosystems. Learn how seaweed aquaculture has the potential to play a major role in creating climate-friendly food systems for a growing population and produce new types of carbon-neutral animal feeds, fuels, and other products for a better future.”

WHOI’s Veronique LaCapra will host a panel to include:

* Robert Jones, Global Aquaculture Lead, The Nature Conservancy
* Scott Lindell, Aquaculture Research Specialist, WHOI
* Briana Warner, CEO Atlantic Sea Farms

The webinar will take place on Wednesday, February 16th at 7:30pm US Eastern time.
