Kelp Mitigation Projects:
The first seaweed farm in California aims to practice regenerative methods of kelp mitigation. This 1/4 acre ocean farm is about 25 feet deep and grows many different species of seaweed at different depths including Ogo, Sea Lettuce, and Giant Kelp. Sunken Seaweed collaborates with San Diego State University’s Kelp Ecology Lab and the Port of San Diego.
Kelp Mitigation Resources:
An Aquaculture Opportunity Area is a small, defined geographic area that has been evaluated to determine its potential suitability for commercial aquaculture. NOAA will use a combination of scientific analysis and public engagement to identify areas that are environmentally, socially, and economically appropriate for commercial aquaculture.
