  • Description

    The ‘Seaweed for Life and the Future’ workshop was born from passionate seaweed lovers that want to highlight the important role seaweeds can and do have in our lives through their contribution to inshore marine habitats, in seaweed products and for sustainable aquaculture, including Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture.

    Workshop posterSeaweed for Life and the Future’ promotes the value of seaweeds by connecting the scientific community, industry and public to discuss and investigate the importance of this natural resource.  The workshop will cover a range of key focus areas including: their ecological role, aquaculture, nutritional values, restoration of habitat, food,
    technological and artistic applications.

    The program brings together a remarkable group of local, Australian and international experts who will share their experiences with seaweed and provide a basis for further discussion on future research, collaborations and business opportunities.
