Silver Sponsor
Murre Technologies

Murre Technologies has been supplying the EasyFarm system with which mussel seed cultivation is possible, for almost 20 years. Seaweed cultivation and processing is their next development. Murre Technologies is building a harvester that harvests the seaweed from the cultivation nets in the sea. Sowing seaweed is also part of the EasyFarm concept, which is why they supply the complete system for harvesting and sowing the seaweed. They have also developed a seaweed bubble washer to sort the sand and undersized waste such as crustaceans from the product during the washing process. The system is equipped with separation rollers for this, the washing water is continuously filtered through a separator drum. To reduce the iodine content, they use a blanching/cooling system.

In short, they are your partner in seaweed harvesting and processing!

The Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority – known as AIDEA – is an independently governed public corporation of the State of Alaska and serves as Alaska’s development finance authority.

Formed by the Alaska State Legislature in 1967, AIDEA fulfills an economic development-focused mission by making investments and offering financing tools to businesses and communities.

Community Sponsor

GreenWave

GreenWave works with coastal communities to create a blue green economy that ensures we all make a living on a living planet. Its farmer-led organization helps small- and medium-scale fishermen and shellfish growers integrate kelp into their businesses in a polyculture model known as regenerative ocean farming. GreenWave’s goal is to train 10,000 farmers and hatchery technicians by 2030, to catalyze the widespread adoption of regenerative ocean farming and yield meaningful climate, marine ecosystem, and economic impacts. GreenWave’s resources are intended to support the emerging industry as a whole, with priority given to the needs of fishermen, Indigenous groups, and other under-resourced coastal communities directly affected by climate change to ensure they benefit from the industry’s growth.

GreenWave launched an online Regenerative Ocean Farming Hub in April 2022 to accelerate resource sharing to a broad audience to rapidly expand adoption of the model. Hub components include an interactive farm design and budgeting tool; seed-to-harvest curriculum for new and experienced ocean farmers and kelp hatchery operators; a community forum to connect farmers, hatchery technicians, and other stakeholders to disseminate best practices; and Seaweed Source, a digital platform that connects regenerative ocean farmers and buyers.
