As seaweed becomes an increasingly valuable resource for a wide variety of culinary, industrial, and cosmetic applications, its role in the public trust and the marine environment are emergent and subject to industrial exploitation.

Seaweed Commons seeks to form ecological seaweed coalitions, support and inform public discourse, increase algal literacy, and advocate for appropriately scaled, just seaweed economies. Our methods are based in systems theory and conservation biology, and are grounded in the principles of ecosystem-based management of community fisheries.
