Optimize production quality and economic performance of farm-reared macroalgae. R&D will be conducted through a series of testing, cultures, and growth trials. Results will lead to environmentally efficient growing techniques, and safety standards/best management practices as applied to marine macroalgae grown in intensive culturing operations.
