A Seaworthy


Our Kelp is

Ocean Approved

growing food for people and planet.

Now, more than ever, we need food sources that can positively impact the economic and environmental health of our coastal communities. This nutrient dense, climate-hero seaweed is rope-grown and hand harvested by family sea-farmers in New England. By farming seaweed in their off-season from fishing, these families are leading the fight against climate change and building a more resilient food future for all of us, all while protecting their livelihoods and improving ocean health.

Kelp is a plant-based


sea-veggies for people, planet, and health!

Our climate-hero kelp is regeneratively grown by family sea-farmers in the U.S. Together, we are building a better food future, improving coastal livelihoods and ocean health, and eating more (sea) veggies!

Thyroid Health

Seaweed is one of the best food sources of iodine (in addition to seafood, dairy, iodized salt and fortified foods). Iodine is needed to make thyroid hormones that help regulate metabolism. Without enough iodine, the thyroid hormones don’t work as they should and can lead to an under-active or overactive thyroid gland.

Vegan & Vegetarian Health

In the U.S., people obtain most of their dietary iodine from iodized salt and milk. Those following 100% plant-based or dairy-free diets as well as those who use sea salt or kosher salt in place of iodized salt are at risk of iodine deficiency. Just one of our kelp cubes provides over 100% of the daily requirement for iodine.

Prenatal & Maternal Health

Iodine is used by the thyroid gland to make thyroid hormones which impact growth and brain development, essential during pregnancy and early childhood.

Blood Sugar Regulation

Studies show that seaweed contains bioactive compounds along with soluble fiber that helps lower blood sugar and improve insulin sensitivity.

Heart health

Kelp contains anti-inflammatory compounds and antioxidants along with cholesterol-lowering soluble fiber, all important for heart health. Studies have shown that higher seaweed intake is associated with lower risk of coronary artery disease and cardiovascular mortality. 

gut health

Kelp supports a healthy gut microbiome which affects nearly all body systems. It contains the amino acid glutamine which helps reduce inflammation and supports overall gut health. Kelp also contains fermentable fiber that helps feed good gut bacteria (prebiotic fiber).

ocean health

Seaweed farms improve ocean health by removing excess carbon and locally mitigating effects of ocean acidification.
