“Success Abroad – Innovation at Home”

Acadian Seaplants Limited (ASL) is a globally recognized industry leader in the processing of seaweed-based products for food, biochemical, agricultural and agri-chemical markets worldwide and in the cultivation and processing of unique seaweeds for Asian as well as global food markets. Several noteworthy aspects of our operations include: the advanced methods used to harvest seaweeds as a sustainable, renewable resource and the technologies created to process the natural seaweed resources into value-added finished products for sale in exacting international markets. These activities have brought knowledge-based employment to Maritime Canadians and environmentally safe benefits to users of the finished products.

With the founding of Acadian Seaplants in 1981, a new Canadian industry was launched.

Acadian Seaplants is a fully-integrated company that is responsible for every stage of its operation from the sustainable harvesting and cultivation of marine plants, technology development and engineering, manufacturing and quality assurance to market development, sales and technical customer support.
