There is more than one way to spread awareness about the state of our Oceans. A single beach clean-up might seem like a tiny act in comparison to the massive scale of environmental pollution, overfishing and climate change our planet is suffering. However, sometimes joined smaller forces can make a big impact. We firmly believe that every action counts. Take a look at the collective mass of actions taken during initiatives like Earth Day. At the same time, consumer choice or individual stances should not be the only means towards save our oceans. Companies and businesses, large and small, must...

Homage to Our Home

We could not be prouder of the small village of Hammenhög, our home, where the Algae Farm is located. Simris was born in the heart of Österlen, which is both a touristic hotspot as part of greater Copenhagen, but also Sweden’s strongest and most innovative region within agriculture and food production. Here, we have settled into the greenhouses of an iconic plant-breeding facility, which once gave Hammenhög its nickname as “the Flower Village”. Where Nature meets History  A bicycle ride through the ripening grain fields in Österlen says it all. Our home is often called the “Provence of Sweden”, thanks to its...

Hey Algae! Thanks for the Oxygen

Annika Jönsson @ 2020-07-16 07:41:09 -0400

Here’s a mind-blowing fact: microalgae produce most of the oxygen we breathe today. Whaa!? And even though they are billions of years old, they are still around, alive, and kicking! These single-cell organisms are the ancestors of all plants and form the basis of the aquatic food chain. They are the inventors of photosynthesis and produce some of the most important nutrients the human body needs, including marine omega-3 essential fatty acids. So why are not more people crazy about these tiny water plants? EATING SUNSHINE, CREATING ENERGY  Microalgae actually invented photosynthesis - the ability to transform sunlight, water and...

We know more about space, than we do about our oceans. Isn't that a mind-blowing fact? What we do know about the Oceans, is all thanks to science and the amazing people behind each discovery. We salute the ones who dedicate their lives to help us understand the secrets of the deeps. This week we are putting the spotlight on a couple of well-known and some perhaps less obvious ocean lovers that we are certain you will be inspired by!
