Seaweeds are the essential component of marine ecosystem which are rich source of protein and other nutrients along with its bioremediation activity to clean the polluted marine ecosystem. 3D Ocean farming is an Integrated Multi-Tropic Agriculture (IMTA) which seeks production of sea weeds, shellfish, mussels, clam, oysters, sea vegetables and so on. It provides maximum output with minimum investment and can be a life changing farming idea to marine farmers and fishermen to transform their income and life to a better and sustainable future. This regenerative farming can give abundant production with minimum investment and maintains clean marine ecosystem by absorbing the heavy metals, carbon, nitrogen leading to sustainable agriculture practices.
