Kelp is essential to our ocean ecosystem and so we are careful and deliberate about what we harvest from the wild. We currently harvest kelp at sustainable levels using a wild harvest permit. We are careful to pick the locations where we harvest in order to have the least impact on the resource, including harvesting from different kelp beds in order to make sure we don’t take too much from a single area. Alaska’s farmed seaweed industry is starting to grow and we look forward to making use of sustainably farmed seaweed in the years to come.
