Devon County Council’s Green Innovation Fund supports creation of seaweed farm
Devon County Council’s Green Innovation Fund, which invests in projects and technologies driving green growth in Devon’s economy, is helping Algapelago Marine Ltd to create a pilot seaweed farm and processing operation in Bideford Bay.
The company is working with Plymouth Marine Laboratories, Portsmouth University and the Eden Project to research the potential for the seaweed market in capturing carbon and improving coastal habitats.
Plans are in place to continue scaling up the farm each year following this pilot.
