“Whilst relatively modest in scale, this harvest is both exciting and significant - it shows that we can take Australian seaweed aquaculture from a concept into a real commercial operation.

Deakin LOLS10在线直播下注's Dr Alecia Bellgrove, a specialist in seaweed product quality, said the research team was keen to analyse the composition and quality of the three species harvested.
