Interactive Map of Bioextraction Projects

Locally-grown kelp (Saccharina latissima) was harvested on the East River off the campus of SUNY Maritime in the Bronx in spring 2021. It will be applied as fertilizer on a Long Island farm as part of a project to test the viability of harvesting kelp as a commercial product as well as to reduce nutrient pollution.

The map below shows the locations where the Long Island Sound Study has funded nutrient bioextraction projects. These efforts expand the understanding and potential of growing and harvesting seaweed and shellfish to remove nitrogen from impaired waters.
