In only the last 60 years we have seen the accelerated decline of the ocean environment. The demand for marine resources rises as the world population increases, which has stressed the ocean to collapse in some regions.

We need new technologies that can heal the ocean; focused in the small-scale and short-term. The key is iron, it is essential for plant-like plankton, and required in exceptionally low concentrations. Only a cup of iron can revitalize a whole hectare of the ocean. It works because iron is a catalyst for photosynthesis. Iron is a metal, vital for all life on Earth, but exceedingly rare in the ocean because it rusts and sinks. Climate change and ocean warming are making iron even more scarce, driving plankton health to decline faster.

Revitalizing plankton has a ripple effect on the marine ecosystem as they provide nutrients to the fish that depend on them for food. Ocean Seeding is a new technology that can catalyze the ocean back to health, recover fish stocks and ensure sustainability for the growing populations of the world.
