Acadian supports everything it does with scientific rigor – from its harvest methods to its products. Decades of research has proven that properly managed, wild seaweeds are a rapidly renewable marine resource.

Acadian carefully oversees the ecosystem involving both marine plants and other marine life in our management practices and we support and encourage regulations, such as the Fishery Management Plan for Rockweed and government licencing of harvest areas, to ensure industry accountability and the sustainability of the valuable seaweed resource and its ecosystem.

To implement the company’s sustainable resource management program, we employ a dedicated team of well-trained and experienced seaweed resource managers and a world-renowned marine biologist, Dr. Raul Ugarte, who is part of a seven-member resource science group, who apply exacting and comprehensive marine management procedures, testing and controls over all our harvesting areas.
