Did you know people have been harvesting seaweed for many hundreds of years? While we have better equipment and tech to ensure the job is much safer than years ago, some of the traditional techniques have not changed   Fully equipped with state-of-the-art safety gear, our team collects seaweed in many types of weathers, rain, sun and wind. Monitoring weather conditions, tide heights and times and wind directions is crucial in order to ensure the team have long enough and are safe enough against the never ending waves from the North Sea.  In a short timeframe around low tides, our harvesters quickly and precisely cut seaweed by hand from specifically designated areas. We are committed to supporting coastal communities and the environment and are proud to work with local Fife fishermen from our coastal community. That's why our harvesters are trained to use techniques that allow seaweed to regrow healthily and vigorously, ensuring a sustainable supply for the long term future.
