Farming Bull Kelp: Lessons Learned and Future Considerations


This document is a resource for bull kelp farmers and researchers. We reached out to all parties (as knowledge allowed) that have experience growing bull kelp (e.g. for restoration, food security, commercial, etc.) to conduct interviews to document their experience and the cultivation specs of their farming efforts; summarized, here. The intent of this document is to provide information that might help reduce risk for farmers and to encourage ongoing R&D to improve cultivation and processing techniques that are specific to bull kelp. This document is not intended to be a comprehensive kelp growing manual; it is additive to other available materials.
