Tare er havets grønne gull for Seaweed (Kelp is the oceans' green gold for SES)

"In Spring 2015 [SES] harvested the first crop in what is one of Europe's largest facility for cultivating kelp outside Frøya. Kelp is a sustainable resource that until now has been little used in Norway, but which has a large commercial potential internationally."

"- The world will need more food in the coming years, and we must exploit more of the ocean's resources, says Reitan. - There is increasing demand for seaweeds in the world market, and with the knowledge and experience we have in aquaculture it would be both unwise and unethical to not take advantage of opportunities. In addition, this is a renewable resource that can lay the foundation for long-term sustainable economic development in Norway."
