We turn sunlight into seafood by replicating aquatic ecosystems.
Algae – microscopic plants have been the basis of food chains for over a billion years. They convert CO2 and sunlight into sugars, amino and fatty acids and make them available for zooplankton and fish. This usually happens on a large scale in oceans and lakes. We are replicating this process on land.
Discover how we do that.
Our mission is to protect natural resources and marine ecosystems

According to UN population projections, the world population will increase by more than 3 billion in the next 50 years, reaching 9.8 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion in 2100. As a result, the current amount of calories consumed daily will rise from 21 billion in 2017 to 38 billion in 2067. A figure hidden in this number is the share of animal protein consumed that will grow at a much faster pace as the global economy will close the gap between rich and poor countries.
This development will push traditional agriculture, aquaculture and global fisheries to their limits. As of today, as much as 85% of the world's fisheries may be overexploited, depleted or fully exploited. The long-term goal of Blue Planet Ecosystems is to contribute to a reliable supply of protein to humanity without endangering Earth’s biodiversity.
We want to enable farming in regions where agriculture is not feasible and where biodiversity is already low or threatened by simultaneously creating climate positive jobs.
