1) When was the first time you got involved with seaweeds and why?
We first started working with algae directly in 2007 to understand its carbon fixing potential
2) What is your view on the Asia-Pacific seaweed industry in 2030?
We should plan to scale the markets for seaweed, especially in food security globally that is totally resilient to cyclones, typhoons and marine heat waves. That will likely require deepwater irrigation at lower latitudes for many species to address the increasing climate disruptions.
3) What will you be talking about at Seagriculture Asia-Pacific 2023?
We will be talking about hurricane-proven offshore seaweed mariculture and deepwater irrigation to address the climate disruptions to come and ensure resilient operations and growth.
