Council backs England's first seaweed farm off Scarborough coastline

Scarborough Council’s cabinet has backed a “good news story” to establish England’s first commercial seaweed hatchery in the waters off the town’s coast.

The authority will act as an accountable body for a £472,150 grant from the Coastal Communities Fund (CCF) to SeaGrown Limited.

 

The Scarborough-based company has licensed a 25-hectare site three miles off the town, which is clear of shipping and otherwise unused in which to grow and harvest seaweed on sunken platforms.

A network of buoys and chains will be anchored there, and the plants grown on submerged lines.
