Lighting the way for restorative aquaculture

Our mission is to create urchin ranching solutions for the restoration of kelp habitat in California and urchin fisheries in New England. Our business creates market incentives for the removal and/or repopulation of sea urchins in marine ecosystems that are currently out of balance. Establishing ecological balance in kelp forests ensures that these coastal habitats can continue to support extensive biodiversity, valuable fisheries, and tremendous carbon sequestration processes.
