Kelp or Seaweed

Support regenerative ocean agriculture!

Marine plants like kelp and seaweed sequester carbon and nutrients out of the water, filtering the water and providing a climate solution, as well as preventing erosion and providing habitat for marine life.

Uni (sea urchin)

In  hotter climates, sea urchin populations are dramatically increasing particularly along the Pacific coast of the US, which is threatening the survival of kelp forests.

One study in Oregon shows a 10,000% increase in sea urchin populations over the past 5 years.


Unlike many other marine plants and animals, jellyfish populations are also increasing with climate change. Jellies can actually thrive in warmer water with less oxygen.

Oysters and other bivalves like scallops, clams and mussels 

These are filter-feeders that purify the water, taking out excess nutrients as well as harmful chemicals. While oysters can serve as the purifying lungs of the ocean, toxins and pollutants can still accumulate in their tissue. Be careful about where you are sourcing your oysters from to ensure the water quality is safe. 

If you are choosing fish, as a general rule of thumb: opt for local, seasonal and smaller species lower on the food chain. Get to know the species native to your area at different times of the year.
