We applied for a 120 acre license in April 2022 to operate a giant kelp farm in Sea Otter Sound, 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.
