Seaweed Farms a Possible Solution to Algae Blooms

New research at the University of California Santa Barbara suggests that aquaculture could help prevent such issues in the future.  A study proposes seaweed farms as a possible solution, especially for nitrogen and phosphorus. Such farms would be able to scrub large amounts of nutrients even after they’ve made their way into the ocean at relatively low costs.
