Asparagopsis aquaculture to reduce emissions in livestock

Following research conducted by CSIRO in Australia, in conjunction with James Cook University, and Meat and Livestock Australia, SeaFeed R2G have established a land based aquaculture facility to produce the methane reducing stock feed additive, bromoform, that is contained in the sea weed Asparagopsis.

The site of 114 Hectares ( 281 acres) situated on the Spencer Gulf in South Australia has the climate to produce both naturally occurring local varieties of Asparagopsis ( Taxiforma and Amarta). Existing and significant earth works on site are already in place, ensuring application use is in place and ongoing for aquaculture.

The methane reducing qualities of this product is well documented by CSIRO (

Proposal is to develop carbon neutral, state of the art facility from production to distribution with a significant in-house laboratory for testing and analysis, seaweed nursery, growing areas, drying facility and packaging.

Working closely with Department for Trade and Investment (DTI), South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI), Primary Industries Regions SA (PIRSA) and local community.
