Seaweed as 'blue carbon'
The potential positive effects on climate and environment.

In January 2023, the EUMOFA (European Market Observatory for Fisheries and Aquaculture Products), published the latest edition of the 2022 edition of the EU blue bioeconomy report. The report focuses on algae and seaweeds, as the algae sector has been recognised as the most notable sector of the EU blue bioeconomy.

Seaweed ecosystems play a significant role in the marine carbon cycle since, according to scientific literature, act as a net sequestrator of CO2 worldwide. Therefore, possible actions to integrate seaweed in climate policies include conservation, restoration and farming, with potential positive effects on both climate and the environment.
