Plentiful in Alaska’s pristine and icy waters, bull kelp or Nereocystis luetkeana, is one of the most common seaweeds along the vast coastline. The abundance of kelp in Alaska makes it an excellent source for food. It is salty, savory, and packed with vitamins and minerals; a delicious and nutritious ingredient. Today, the majority of kelp is wild harvested by the Barnacle team and they work closely with the ocean farmers who are just beginning to cultivate kelp. As they grow, Barnacle is building a framework so that harvesters and kelp farmers can expand, too. At Sena Sea, we are doing our part by helping to create a consumer market for kelp.

Sena Sea is proud to bring you kelp products from our friends at Barnacle Foods, located in Juneau Alaska. We are excited about kelp because it provides many ecological benefits, including absorbing excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which helps to combat ocean acidification.

ALASKAN FARMED KELP
Farmed kelp requires no arable land, fresh water, or fertilizers. Clean ocean, strong currents, and some hard working sea farmers is all that is needed.
Throughout coastal Alaska there are a handful of farmers in every stage of farming from pre-permitting to commercial-scale harvest. Barnacle is working with a farmer to purchase the first ever commercially harvested bull kelp in Alaska. We wish them great success with this endeavor. Learn more at barnaclefoods.com
