Abstract: Seaweed aquaculture is gaining more interest worldwide, including Europe. However, despite its long coast seaweed farming is still very minor in Sweden. The overarching aim of this thesis is to develop sustainable cultivation methods for Sugar kelp (Saccharina latissima) in Sweden, with more specific focus on (1) the effect of seaweed farming on ecosystem services and its environmental impact, (2) spatial location of farm sites, and (3) the development of new techniques and knowledge for selecti... more
