SeaStock has partnered with the marine research science team at Flinders University in Adelaide. 

The partnership is critical to SeaStock's success as it moves towards its goal of full-scale commercial production of Western Australian Asparagopsis.

Asparagopsis taxiformis is a Western Australian native red algae that has been shown to reduce methane emissions in livestock by up to 90%. 

Methane is a greenhouse gas that is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide, so reducing methane emissions is essential for combating climate change.

SeaStock and Flinders University are in phase two of their research program, which is focused on developing commercially viable Asparagopsis cultivation methods. The research team is investigating both onshore and offshore cultivation methods.

"We are very excited to be working with Flinders University on this important research," said SeaStock Managing Director Tom Puddy. 

"The team at Flinders has world-class expertise in seaweed cultivation, and we are confident that together we can develop the methods needed to produce Asparagopsis taxiformis on a commercial scale."

The successful development of commercially viable Asparagopsis cultivation methods would have a major impact on the global agriculture sector.
