Seawater represents 97% of Earth’s water supply; it is abundant. In fact, it is perhaps our only unlimited natural resource.
It’s hard to grasp, but that’s what the Seawater Foundation (TSF) is about using that resource – Seawater. A very important distinction to start: we’re not talking about desalting seawater. What we do (& have been doing for over 30 years) is grow plants directly on seawater.

It has always been the belief of the Seawater Foundation and it's supporters that for environmental efforts to make a difference, they must also be
economic successes. And for business to flourish in the 21st century, they
must take planetary environmental enhancement as part of their "bottom line".
We have spent many years in research and basic implementation of
seawater agriculture and aquaculture technologies.
With that premise, we
are proud to share that we have transferred these technologies along with
Seawater Farms Bahia Kino from its home with TSF to Global Seawater, inc.
(GSI), a for-profit company that will make a difference in the ecology of
the planet in a strong business context and profits for its investors.

TSF will continue with new research along the same fronts, and to use
seawater to plant forests of mangroves and other appropriate halophytes for
carbon sequestration. We will use our platform to communicate the promise
of a new agriculture -- that of seawater. And we look forward to continued
association with GSI as a collaborator on seawater interests and momentum.
