WHAT IS POSTELSIA?
Postelsia is a type of seaweed that only lives in areas where the wave energy is the most intense along the west coast of North America. Postelsia provides an inspiring example of the power of life finding a way to create a species in a highly unlikely space by achieving balance between very strong opposing forces. We believe this to be a good (albeit geeky) metaphor of the challenge of sustainability and a reminder of the depth of the challenge that the human species faces as we attempt to reconcile our desired realities within the biological realities of the planet.
WHO WE ARE
Postelsia is an innovations company; we seek to foster innovations through the building of partnerships and the integration of technology. We are a small team of dedicated individuals that seek to have a positive influence on the world. We aim to do this through the medium of food production and namely through fisheries and aquaculture production.
Today’s seafood industry is experiencing an unprecedented green wave with environmental and social sustainability gaining importance at every link of the supply chain. Numerous eco-labels flood seafood counters and philanthropic communities are spending unprecedented amounts of money to build bridges between industry and NGO players.
There is also a need to connect cultures and to solve for the critical gap between the realities of producers and the needs of buyers in order for a truly sustainable seafood industry to emerge.
