Abstract

Seaweed farming has become one of the economically important natural resources. The existing cultivation system for seaweed is not suitable for deployment in deep and open water areas. Moreover, the current cultivation system is not environmentally sustainable and is economically unstable. This chapter describes the design of the offshore floating structures scientifically based on improvement of the Long Line System for commercialized scale seaweed farming. Some key factors in the design, prototype, and testing of floating offshore structures considered in the development of ocean farming technology systems are discussed.
