According to researchers, seaweed can be used to clean polluted water because they consume a lot of inorganic nutrients. Nutrients from fish waste, from sewage facilities, and from land, like nitrogen and phosphorous, are inorganic and pollute our water, but some types of seaweed need these nutrients to live. Professor Charles Young developed this idea and has received $2.4 million from the Long Island Sound Futures Fund and about $200,000 from Connecticut Sea Grant College to continue his research on how seaweed can be used to help the environment.
Seaweed also produces a great deal of oxygen, putting it back in water that has been de-oxygenated (hypoxia).
