From the dawn of creation, the sea has served as the source of life on earth, covering two thirds of its surface.
The seaweed which grows in the oceans acts as the basis for the development of the plant and animal kingdoms.
Seakura has chosen to take on the challenge of protecting the oceans, the seas and their resources, while developing a sustainable system.
Seakura has developed unique technology for land-based seaweed farming as a basis for the continuing development of a healthy food chain, while remaining vigilant about the environment and the Eco-system.
At the Seakura farm we grow seaweed of the Ulva and Gracilaria varieties, using unique technology developed by the farm’s staff. This technology makes it possible to intensively grow macro seaweed at high density throughout the year, in a land-based facility while fully controlling all the growth conditions. This innovative method replaces sea-based growth in which the seaweed is exposed to various pollutants, including heavy metals and other harmful elements, as well as other environmental conditions which are less than optimal, and lead to the rate of growth and quality of the seaweed being damaged. The source of water for growing the seaweed is a seawater well which provides a supply of high-quality water, free of pollutants, at a regulated temperature throughout all seasons.
About the farm
Seakura’s seaweed pools are located by the beach around Michmoret, and as you approach them you can hear the whisper of jacuzzi-like bubbles, replicating the movement of the water in the sea. Water is pumped in from deep in the sea and then moved over two kilometers through a giant pipe, at the end of which it is purified. This purified seawater is stored in the highest spot on the farm and from there, as gravity acts upon it, the water descends into the various growing pools. At the end of use, the water is returned to the sea, in order to avoid harming the marine environment insofar as we are able.
