  Seaweed cultivation is well established in Asia and needs little explanation/justification. In the western world, a renewed interest in seaweed mariculture has been triggered by their cultivation in integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) systems, the emerging understanding of the ecosystem services they provide (e.g. nutrient biomitigation, irrigation-less and deforestation-less foo...

22/05/2017 | IMTA has arisen from the control of nutrients from sea farm fish cages to mitigate pollution I would rather my seaweed was grow in pristine waters well away from polling fish farms. I have some idea that seaweeds will take up more than just nutrients from polluted waters but other elements of fish farm pollution that are present. I would like to see papers on this subject matter for better clarification.
