Kelp Blue 49
Alaska’s clear cold waters are perfect for cultivating giant kelp and the state is poised to take a leadership position in mariculture with its rich mariculture history and local knowledge.
We applied for a 60-hectare license in April 2022 to operate a giant kelp farm near Craig/Klawock, on the Prince of Wales Island. All processing will take place in the vicinity of the farm. We are currently busy fostering the sales and logistics channels to support a new mariculture business. Our operations will generate 20+ new full-time jobs in environmental monitoring, engineering and kelp processing (plus dozens of indirect jobs) in our first year of operation.
