Seaweed can replace 5.6 Million Lay Hens by 2030

Large-scale seaweed cultivation in the North Sea could produce as much protein as 5.6 million laying hens by 2030. A quick scan by Natuur & Milieu shows this. In this way, seaweed can play a good role in the protein transition: replacing animal proteins with vegetable proteins on our plates. Cultivation has further sustainability benefits: it is expected to improve biodiversity and offers potential for green gas. However, the development of the sector requires support.

The quick scan describes ecological preconditions, production methods, business cases, obstacles and recommendations. In short, everything to accelerate the consumption of seaweed.
