Congratulations Weatherly Bates

“Seaweed including Sugar Kelp, Alaria and dulse form a dense underwater forest on our oyster longlines every spring in Alaska. Kelp forests have an extensive diversity of plants and animals; Including marine mammals, urchins, Fish and crustacean, that rely on the Kelp as habitat and for food. This Kelp community contributes significantly to the productivity of the environment. In addition, Kelp has the potential to reduce ocean acidification as it grows quickly taking up carbon dioxide from the seawater. By providing a surface for Kelp to grow on, our oyster farm provides a multitude of environmental benefits to our local ecosystem..”
