Our founders created the first commercially viable seaweed farm in the United States in 2009, with the goal of diversifying how our coastal waters are used and providing a domestic, fresh, healthy alternative to imported seaweed products.
Now, more than ever, we need food sources that can positively impact the economic and environmental health of our coastal communities. Climate change is already making landfall on coastal communities in the US, and our future depends on finding new ways for fishing families to work on the water while improving the health of our oceans.

Over 98% of the edible seaweed on the market is grown in Asia. Some of this product is grown in compromised water with little or no environmental oversight or workplace safety. When it comes into the U.S., it is then often re-hydrated and dyed with some pretty nasty stuff. We know we can do it better right here in the US with seaweed that tastes the way it should - naturally.

The Atlantic Sea Farms team is made up of scientists, economists, product developers, marketing strategists, food safety and sales pros, chefs, and sustainable ocean advocates.
We love our work, team, and the communities we serve. Can climate action be fun and deliciously rewarding? We know so!
