ALASKAN WILD KELP
Kelp is essential to the ocean ecosystem. We are careful and deliberate about how we harvest wild kelp. We strive to have the least impact on the resource; this includes visiting a different kelp bed for each harvest and only taking a small portion of the kelp bed. We are careful to not take too much from a single area and only use our hands and knife to cut each piece to harvest.
ALASKAN FARMED KELP
Farmed kelp requires no arable land, fresh water, or fertilizers. Clean ocean, strong currents, and some hard working sea farmers is all that is needed.
Throughout coastal Alaska there are a handful of farmers in every stage of farming from pre-permitting to commercial-scale harvest. In Spring 2019 we are working with a farmer to purchase the first ever commercially harvested bull kelp in Alaska. We are excited to turn this crop into something delicious!
