Seagriculture 2019

10th International Seaweed Conference

15-16 September I Bodø I Norway

Some seaweeds are microscopic, such as the phytoplankton that live suspended in the water column and provide the base for most marine food chains. Some are enormous, like the giant kelp that grow in abundant “forests” and tower like underwater redwoods from their roots at the bottom of the sea. Most are medium-sized, come in colors of red, green, brown, and black, and randomly wash up on beaches and shorelines just about everywhere. 

The conference gathers top speakers, who will share their know-how within seaweed for feed, food, offshore cultivation, biorefinery of seaweed and much more. Don't miss this unique opportunity to network with colleagues from all over Europe within industry and research.

We aim for a physical conference for optimal networking opportunities. Authority guidelines will be followed and all necessary measures taken to ensure a safe environment during the conference.
