I have started a database of all companies and organisations working in the seaweed economy.
The database currently contains around 500 companies, 150 investors and 150 species of algae.
Development of the database
Originally, the database contained both microalgae and macroalgae. I have split off the microalgae database to a separate website.
At first, this database was behind a paywall, but it is now free for all and creative commons. Feel free to use this data in your own project.
Over the coming months, I aim to expand the database with more research institutes, add Asian companies, and add a sense of volume and level of investment.
Please explore the data below. Using the filter and search buttons at the top you can easily drill down to the information you need. At the bottom-right, click “View larger version” for a full-screen view, and “Copy base” to get your own copy you can use at will.
Is your organisation missing? Some data is wrong? Please fill in the form below and I will add it to the database shortly.
Any other comments, ideas or propositions are also welcome! Send me a message.

The EU’s EMODNET database was an excellent point of departure for my own efforts. Many thanks to the authors for sharing their work.
