Guest Speaker: Dr Nick Paul from University of the Sunshine Coast will present a scientific talk on Seaweed – Good for you and good for the environment
Seaweed is touted as a superfood, an alternative protein source and even an environmental fix for climate change. But how do we go about realising all of this potential? This talk will take a step back from the hype around algae to look at what is happening in our region, drawing on international inspirations plus some uniquely Australian research developments. It will explore where the state of the art is for seaweed culture, and what our next steps should be to get the most out of these biological systems. Our aim is to create a new industry for Australia that is both economically and environmentally sustainable, starting with Moreton Bay – to achieve this, doing the right science with the right partners will be crucial.
