Strategically located algae farms could increase global food production by 56% using just one-tenth of cropland: New research

According to research published in the journal Oceanography, there‚Äôs an opportunity to feed the world by farming fast-growing, low-resource, photosynthesizing algae on marginal coastal lands globally. Nutrient-rich algae, farmed along coastlines in pounds of seawater pumped up from the ocean, could produce enough food to feed 10 billion people in the next 25 years —Continue reading “Strategically located algae farms could increase global food production by 56% using just one-tenth of cropland: New research”
