Cultivation on the west coast - Puget Sound in Washington State - was successful but became unviable commercially when residents of the shore areas objected to the presence of seaweed farms and access to sufficient space to expand the pilot farm was refused.

Seaweeds, which are naturally abundant in Puget Sound, could help address this growing problem. The team proposes to cultivate seaweed at a demonstration site in north Hood Canal, assess the project’s effect on the acidity of nearby water, and harvest the resulting crop to test marketable products such as plant fertilizer, food and biofuels.
