"Beyond being a highly nutritional food source, environmentally, seaweed production is the most benign form of aquaculture, requiring very little infrastructure, no inputs and having an exceptionally quick growth rate." ~Anne-Marie Szabo
"Sylvia Earle likes to say ‘No Blue, No Green’ in explaining the role of the ocean as the incubator and cradle of life on earth, also the driver of climate, weather and rain, the generator of over half the oxygen we air breathers consume and the salty home of some of the deepest, widest, weirdest habitats and marine critters from eel grasses to methane seeps, sarcastic fringeheads to narwhales. "
"Damon Gameau, the filmmaker behind the environmental documentary 2040, is a seaweed fan...
'We know that a lot of the fish populations are on the verge of collapse...We are in a bit of a fish crisis in terms of how much overfishing has gone on. So if we grow more seaweed in the ocean, it will help fish to lay their eggs in the ecosystem [and regenerate fish populations in the ocean].' "
"A diet that contains small amounts of seaweed will reduce methane emissions from belching cows – by 80%.." ~Emma Bryce
"Seaweed may be a quiet achiever when it comes to mitigation of greenhouse gases, with it now shown to travel far and deep beyond coastal areas and thus to play a key role in sequestering carbon from the atmosphere."
