5 billion. Total annual use by the global seaweed industry is about 8 million tonnes of wet seaweed. Seaweed can be collected from the wild but is now increasingly cultivated. It falls into three broad groups based on pigmentation; brown, red and green seaweed.

Use of seaweed as food has strong roots in Asian countries such as China, Japan andFile Size: 1MB. Untapped Value of Seaweed in Ireland Business According to the results of a year long study, Ireland's £6, a year seaweed industry could have a value of up to eight times as much.

The size of the Irish industry should be considered in relation to the international seaweed industry. About 10 million t of seaweeds (wet weight) are produced world-wide each year.

Brown algae accounted for 7 million t, of which Chinese production alone of the food kelp Saccharina japonica is just below 5 million t, making it the largest.

The commercial harvesting of seaweed is an international industry with 35 countries participating. An estimated eight million tonnes of seaweed is produced annually with an estimated value of $(US) 6 billion. The past 20 years has seen seaweed production double and exceeded the supply available from the harvesting of naturally occurring species.

This report is an update of the current status and future export potential of the Irish seaweed industry book of the global seaweed market: production figures from culture and capture, the size of the international market for seaweed and its commercially important extracts, the leading nations by region, developments in processing and utilization technology, and innovations in the industry, as well as the challenges and outlook for the industry.

An interesting and important trend in terms of the sustainability (both ecological and economic) of the seaweed industry is the growth in seaweed farming as well as a decline in seaweed wild harvest. In around million t was harvested, 52% of all seaweeds used.

Inonlyt were harvested, comprising only 4% of all seaweed use. Project aim: the commercial cultivation of Kelp (Laminaria digitata)Ireland’s seaweed and biotechnology sector is worth €18m annually.

Supplied mainly from the wild resource there is great commercial potential for Irish aquaculture through the farming of seaweed for use in this high value sector.

This will come as welcome news to those exporting €10 million worth of Irish seaweed annually, as well as under-pinning Bord Iascaigh Mhara’s ambitious plans to double current export. Electrical machinery and equipment represent the fastest grower among the top 10 export categories, up by % from to In second place for improving export sales was the dairy, eggs and honey category via a % gain.

India’s coastline is km long and has an Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of million km 2 (equal to 66% of total mainland area) ().Nearly 30% of its human population is, one way or another, dependent on the rich exploitable coastal and marine resources.

The Irish Seaweed industry has received much attention in recent times. The State Development Agencies, DAFF, Research Bodies and Industry Organisations have been united to a greater extent in their intentions to facilitate the development of the sector to realise its full potential.

Irish seaweed exported by Algaran is now eaten in Japan with sushi. Like many SMEs, the export angle has proved lucrative when skills and circumstances align. For the moment, Algaran’s export.

However, cultivation of four types of seaweed in Ireland could provide some new jobs along the west and south-west coasts, with a further 80 to jobs in processing, the report says. • Investigate the potential uses of seaweed, taking into account future research needs and global market opportunities • Examine any barriers to realising the sector’s potential and make recommendations to overcome these The current economic contribution of the Irish seaweed industry has been estimated to be IR£ million p.a.

This Seaweed Site is a source of general information on all aspects of seaweeds. Seaweeds are marine algae: saltwater-dwelling, simple organisms that fall into the somewhat outmoded, but still useful, category of "plants". Most of them are the green (more than species), brown (about species) or red (over species) kinds, samples of which are each illustrated on this page, and.

BIM Seaweed Programme • BIM seaweed development programme present • Industry led initially funded by BIM later by EFF and EMFF • - BIM awarded the contract to operate a pilot scale hatchery in West Cork to CPS • BIM currently lease the hatchery space from BMRS under open tender • BIM contract requires the production of 20 kms.

Organic aquaculture is a holistic method for farming marine species in line with organic principles. The ideals of this practice established sustainable marine environments with consideration for naturally occurring ecosystems, use of pesticides, and the treatment of aquatic life.

Managing aquaculture organically has become more popular since consumers are concerned about the harmful impacts. Ireland's native seaweed harvesting industry comprises of less than 10 companies. However, due to sheer demand and a finite quantity of seaweed, the cottage industry would appear to have a very.

At all stages, the ‘potential’ of the future indus-try has been viewed as being larger than its actual scale and this is as relevant today as it was years ago or more, when the industry looked very different (Hafting et al., ).

Many researchers foresee a future. The Irish seaweed industry is currently worth €10m annually, but the government plans to grow this figure to €20m by Seaweed is a lucrative market, according to the BIM, with dried and packaged Laminaria digitata – used as a functional ingredient to combat cellulite and obesity – can sell for € €16/kg for bulk quantities.
