Traditional harvest of seaweeds has occurred in Alaska for millenia where they made up an important food for the many Indigenous peoples of Alaska. It was gathered, dried, enjoyed, and traded with inland peoples.
Harvesting wild kelp comes a responsibility to harvest carefully and cautiously to ensure the kelp beds proliferate into the future for generations to come.
FOR OUR OCEANS
We make careful and deliberate decisions about how and when we harvest. Each piece is cut by hand and carefully transported to maintain the highest quality. We harvest only a small amount from each wild kelp bed we visit. We map and monitor the wild kelp beds to better understand where kelp lives and thrives.
The Alternative Method
We are on the forefront of something big here. Farmed kelp is the food of the future and why we are so excited to introduce eaters everywhere to kelp’s flavor and virtues.
