Seaweed Research Steinhagen Swedish Coasts

All along the Swedish west coasts: The great seaweed summer sampling 2019

Sampling seaweed in Sweden

To screen for potential candidates for our seaweed cultivation at the Sven Lovén Centre for Marine infrastructure of the University of Gothenburg on the island Tjärnö, we are collecting green seaweeds all along the Swedish west coast.

By this, in combination with selective breeding, new culture varieties and high-performing cultivation strains can be developed.

By monitoring their growth and testing different methods of cultivation we are able to find the best suitable approach to facilitate high biomass production of high quality seaweeds.

From the produced biomass several high value compounds are getting extracted.

Harbors as well as remote areas get examined.
