Penmon Seaweed Hatchery
PEBL facilities in March 2021.
In spring 2021 we also started cultivating Sugar Kelp. This species is typically grown on thin twine which is wrapped around a pipe to make a spool. Kelp is a very fast growing species and we have been able to identify baby Sugar Kelp blades after just 4 weeks of cultivation.
