The Seaweed Farmers in harbor IJmuiden

Surrounded by piers and yachts , the harbor of IJmuiden in the Netherlands hides a marvoulous shining pearl; the first seaweed farm of Nikki Spil. October 2020 she will be sowing her next batch of seaweed plants which will be harvested in April 2021. Nikki presented our online Double Nature Talk of September 30 at 8pm CEST. Soon we will publish her presentation on YouTube, like we did with all the other Double Nature Talks. The previous Double Nature Talk about soil can be watched here.


The Seaweed Farmers not only create value with seaweed as a fertilizer, they also clean the harbor with the plants. Seaweed filters water polluted by industrial processes.
