Euronews OCEAN season 2, episode 5: Why don't we farm more seaweed?

It can be healthy and delicious, and we know that Asian countries produce one hundred times more of it than Europe — though their methods aren't always eco-friendly. Can we catch up while keeping algae aquaculture sustainable? In this episode of Ocean, we'll follow European algae from farm to fork, meeting Dutch pioneers of seaweed farming as they work to make this business competitive and eco-friendly. 

Tune in to Euronews from 9 June @ 20:50 CET – on any platform.
