A Green Mountain seaweed strain, a superfood that grows naturally on land and is used in aquaculture and food production, is becoming a household name in the culinary world.
A study published in the journal Food Chemistry in December 2017 by researchers from the University of California at Berkeley and the University at Buffalo in New York showed that Green Mountain strains have the ability to withstand a range of temperatures and nutrients, as well as to be high in antioxidant and biotin content.
The study also demonstrated that Green Island strains can thrive in acidic environments.
“These findings demonstrate that GreenMountain strains can survive under conditions where seaweed has been exposed to pH extremes and other environmental stresses, including nutrient levels,” said the study’s lead author Dr. David G. Anderson, a professor of chemical engineering and chemistry at UC Berkeley.
Anderson and his team studied the Green Mountain genome and compared it to seaweed samples from other plants.
“The GreenMorph is a strain that is very sensitive to pH, which is one of the main concerns for aquacultural aquacultures,” said Dr. Daniel M. Gaffin, an assistant professor of agricultural chemistry at the University College of Wales.
“Its genome is very large, so its ability to tolerate the extremes of seawater conditions makes it particularly useful for aquaponics.”
Dr. Gafin is leading the research project, which was funded by the National Science Foundation and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
“These results are a big deal,” said Gaffon, who is also an associate professor of molecular biology at UCB.
“These results show that Green molds are capable of surviving in conditions that we thought would be extremely difficult to sustain.
It opens up a whole new avenue for aquarists to grow these plants in a sustainable way.
They can grow in soil with very little water, which makes them perfect for aquascaping, and they can grow on anaerobic soils where they can thrive.”
Green Mountain seaweeds have been around for a long time.
In fact, they are native to parts of China, Japan and Taiwan, and have been cultivated for centuries in Japan, South Korea, China and other countries.
“A few years ago, we found that a lot of the plant species we used to use in aquaponic production were very resistant to salinity, so we wanted to understand what makes seaweed grow in these conditions,” said Anderson.
“One of the things we found was that they have a lot more of a biotin molecule in their genome.
This molecule is essential for seaweed to survive in these types of environments, so they were really good candidates for growing on an aquaponically based aquaponica system.”
Aquaponics is the growing of crops on a floating platform that includes fish, bacteria and plants.
The aquaponichord, which uses aquaponical farming techniques to grow crops on floating platforms, is currently growing at the GreenManaum Aquaponics Center in Seattle.
The center has been growing aquaponicals for more than 30 years, but Anderson says the Greenmorph strain is now the only seaweed plant that has been successfully cultivated on an actual aquaponiche system.
The Greenmmorph seaweed is the first seaweed that has successfully been grown in a floating aquaponico system.
“I was really excited to see this strain growing on the Greenmountain system,” Anderson said.
“It’s very hard to do, and it’s hard to get these types in the market, so this is very exciting.”
This strain is a super-fast-growing, super-good-for-you plant that is ideal for aquasheeds, and also for other seaweeds that we’re seeing a lot in the aquacrops market, such as seaweed with a really high level of biotin.
“The Greenmountains seaweed comes in two forms: green or black, and each has different properties.
The green form is a slightly darker green with a darker pinkish tinge to it.
The black form has a slightly more blueish tint.
Green mixtures are commonly used for making sushi.”
GreenMorph strains are actually very easy to grow,” said Maffie M. Stolle, an aquacopterist and aquacromaster in Seattle who specializes in the use of aquaponies for growing seaweeds.”
We are seeing a number of different varieties, including the greenmorph, and I think the fact that it is an excellent strain is probably one of its greatest attributes,” she said.”
In general, I don’t think people are really thinking about the plant in terms of its nutritional value, but the way it grows really is just very, very different than anything else we have ever seen.
It’s the fastest growing plant that I’ve ever seen, and if you think about how long it
