Sustainable Seaweed Farming As An Agricultural Model

Research projects like the Coral Triangle Initiative are working to safeguard water zones.

Studies like these are international efforts to protect coral reef areas.

The intention is to defend not only the reef ecosystems, but also the local fisheries and individuals that live in these regions. They also further examine associations between whether or not indigenous opportunities, like seaweed farming, are viable commodities for local people.

One objective of researchers in a mission called Hugging the Coast, which was in the same vein as the Coral Triangle Initiative, was looking at available connections between these commercial areas and to seek sustainable, climate aware agricultural opportunities. By looking at aquaculture over a long term basis, not only do ecological approaches enhance environmental properties but they also foster the livelihood of many generations in the water communities.
