Kelp breeding – Norway's next salmon adventure?

"The sugar kelp is a «super-organism» that can be used in animal feed and a wide range of other important products. Still, genetic improvement is required to make cultivation more profitable. A new spin-off from Foods of Norway aims to make this happen." 

"The main goal of this preproject, named «Breed4Kelp2Feed», is to lay the basis for breeding sugar kelp.- This pilot-project on kelp breeding is a milestone, says project-partner and CEO at Seaweed Energy Solutions, Jon Funderud."
