Kelp fronds and pneumatocysts. Pneumatocysts, gas-filled bladders, float the kelp plant off the ocean bottom toward the surface and sunlight, where the leaf-like blades and stipes of the kelp plant grow fastest. Giant kelp can grow up to 2' in a single day given optimal conditions. Epic submarine forests of kelp grow throughout California's Southern Channel Islands, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Clemente Island

Will we farm, mine and drill our oceans as we have our land? Or can we do a better job this time around?

Tapping Oceans’ Bounty

Many varieties of sea vegetables have traveled out of health food stores and into local supermarkets and American homes.

The healing power of seaweed was an inspiration for our design of Jafra Botanical Expertise' Moisture Quench Hair Mask. Nothing hydrates better than something that lives underwater!

Scientists at Bio Architecture Lab tinkered with the superbug e.coli and turned it into a microbe that can turn the sugar in seaweed into fuel, and maybe even renewable chemicals.
