What is kelp?

Kelp is a special species of seaweed, scientifically known as microalgae. This large, brown, nutrient-dense and antioxidant-packed seaweed sways in the cool, tidal shallows of Northeast Atlantic coastlines. Growing in dense underwater forests, the regenerative, zero input crop creates habitat and a local ecosystem for various ocean dwellers, swimming and crawling. Kelp also has a unique ability to sequester substantial amounts of atmospheric carbon and deacidify ocean waters, which make it a critical link in the chain of our planet's sustained health.
