Seawater Solutions

Seawater Solutions is all about turning coastal farmland into wetland ecosystems. They have designed a way to create 'artificial' saltmarsh on degraded farmland, where you can grow food using seawater and store carbon, promote wildlife, and support regenerative agriculture. Seawater Solutions turns coastal farmland in Scotland into artificial saltmarsh ecosystems where we grow saline vegetables, such as Samphire, using seawater.

Their sea-vegetables, grown in South Ayrshire, are the first of their kind, grown on redeveloped farmland that we have turned into artificial saltmarsh ecosystems to tackle climate change and the loss of biodiversity. These crops take in over 30 times more carbon than the rainforest, strengthen soils, create habitats for wildlife, and protect us from rising sea-levels... Without a single drop of freshwater!
