Livealgae UK Philosophy

Our philosophy is a sustainable farming with consideration for the environment.  We use energy efficient light sources and insulated tanks to keep the energy consumption as low as possible. 

All marine algae we sell are sustainably grown in the UK. New algae species which we might need to import from abroad, as there is no UK source available, will be kept in quarantine until it is proven safe. Our aim is to sell primarily the new growth of those algae to eliminate the need to source this alga in the future again.

Whilst our family run business goes from strength to strength, it is important for us that we are able to give back to those charities which do a great job in protecting the marine environment within the UK and worldwide.

We support a wide range of charities, from large international foundations that help thousands of people across the globe, to smaller local projects that benefit the areas of London in which we operate.

A lot of Charities do such an amazing and importing work which is necessary to protect not just the marine life environment. 

So what could be closer for us than to support a Charity which protects the environment, from which we sourced our lovely marine macro algae species?.

We believe we found a good charity in the UK registered charity The Seahorse Trust.

The Seahorse Trust - UK Charity

A little help and a little consideration can make big changes and we got the impression that the people of The Seahorse Trust are very passionate about the work they are doing.

Although a lot of people help thankfully voluntarily this charity, as you will imagine every extra financial support will support their great work and help to reach more in the future.

Giving Back

We are happy to support the Seahorse Trust in the future with 3% of our Net Sales.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a shop to visit?

As an aquatic algae farm, we don't have a public shop to visit unfortunately but we are happy to post all our macro algae species within the UK for free to you.

And we are sure you will like your new macro algae addition once received.

How do I know when a algae is back in stock?

You can register your interest on the algae page you are looking for to get an email once it is back in stock or stay informed via our Newsletter, and or to follow us on Facebook, as we will first inform there when our algae are ready to sell again, or when we received new macro algae species.

What means "Regrowing"?

When a macro algae species sells well we have sometimes to take it out of the sale as it will need time to regrow again.

The time for this will vary, as some macro algae species will grow very slow, whilst other - especially various  Caulerpa marine macro algae species grow quite fast.
