The workshop, which was held in Mandarin, shared Chinese experiences in algae artificial breeding and cultivation and rehabilitation of giant seaweed beds that contribute to carbon sequestration. Together with marine planktonic algae, seaweeds constitute the main primary producers of the ocean and provide us with a large number of usable resources. Seaweed species such as kelps provide essential nursery habitats for fisheries and other marine species and thus protect food sources. Other species, such as planktonic algae, play a vital role in capturing carbon and producing oxygen. Seaweeds also have the capability to purify water and reduce ocean acidification and nutrient pollution in seas. They have been widely used in food, medicine, industry, agriculture, and other fields.
