About This Book

As featured on BBC News and TIME
'The potential of seaweed, or marine algae, to transform our world is huge… excellent book' New Scientist
The seaweed revolution is a fresh hope for tomorrow.

Seaweed develops in water everywhere, from the eternal glaciers to lagoons heated by the sun, from seas saturated with salt to the fresh water of our rivers. Yet we only know how to cultivate a few dozen varieties, at most. Incredibly diverse, seaweed could help to bring back balance in our ecosystems through a wide range of applications. It could allow us to better feed human beings and animals, replace plastic and fertilizers, boost medical innovations, mitigate global warming, repair biodiversity and support economies in coastal communities where fish stocks are declining.

Although seaweed has supported our development for millions of years, we have lost our connection with it and focused our efforts purely on land cultivation. Today a fast-growing global population, combined with climate, social and environmental crises, gives us compelling reasons to reconsider this forgotten treasure.

'Seaweeds and algae have an essential role to play in the solutions available to us and Vincent Doumeizel's The Seaweed Revolution shows us how' Ambassador Peter Thomson, UNSG's Special Envoy for the Ocean and former President of the UN General Assembly

'Seaweed holds the key to help solve many of the crises the world is facing' Carlos M. Duarte, Executive Director of the Coral Research and Development Accelerator Platform

'A powerful read which will enlighten, enthuse and inspire in equal measure' Ocean Challenge Magazine
