I am presently attending a workshop organized by our local institute and co sponsored by many international NGO and companies to discuss sustainable mariculture for the future to avoid overfishing and increase the availability of seafood products. Seaweed is one of the main maricultures that is supported because of its health benefits values and contribution to mankinds. This is just the first day of four days workshop in South Sulawesi and the first day has been interesting. Hopefully I can share some information that I gain from this workshop. However, for details you need to pm me on those issues you might be interested.

Hi! Sorry that I have not been able to update this workshop I had attended. That was a good and usefull workshop to attend. I am glad I had attended that workshop even I could not participate the most fun part of the workshop that was building a coral reef as I am not a certified scuba diver. Besides, I had to be with our Gracilaria farmers in our new farming site for Gracilaria gias in the sea. YES, we can build new coral reefs. In fact, in Bali we have the largest BioRock (man-made coral reefs) ever build. I believe BioRock program is a good program and I hope I can build my own coral reef when I havelobal my own private island. lol!

I have seen many presentation by many researchers from the United States at The Sustainable Mariculture Workshop and our Indonesian researchers showing that the natural fisheries resource will continue to decline due to overfishing, world populations increase, global warming etc. By year 2050, the fishes will all gone unless we farm more seafood to sustain the need of seafood worldwide.

Seaweed had been discussed during that workshop and International Seaweed Symposium in Kobe early this year as one of the best CO2 sinker besides the forest. In fact the recent meeting in Bali on Global Warming issues, there is a group of worldwide researchers have a session where they discussed using seaweed as CO2 sinker. I am glad to see that seaweed farming can be useful for the environment, not just for the hydrocolloid industries.
