Production of edible seaweed - FLAGs Danish Small Islands & Bornholm - DK

This project involves cooperation between stakeholders from two Danish FLAGs, one on the island of Bornholm and the other covering smaller islands, in commercially exploiting seaweed, an overlooked resource in Danish waters. By promoting the sustainable cultivation, harvesting and processing of seaweed, the project will assist in diversifying the local economies of the islands, thereby helping to maintain strong local populations and vibrant communities.
