The Breakdown:

Problem:
The relationship between our oceans and food systems urgently needs to be transformed to prevent extractive seafood industries and other side-effects of conventional agriculture from causing irreparable harm to the oceans.

Solution:
12 Tides makes ocean-positive foods with kelp from regenerative ocean farms. By creating high-value end-markets for regeneratively-grown kelp, 12 Tides is supporting sustainable growth of the kelp farming industry in North America.

Impact:
By cultivating kelp and its introduction to the consumer market, the damage inflicted upon the ocean can be reversed. Kelp farming reduces ocean acidification so that marine life can thrive and serves as an alternative income source for coastal communities.
