National Seaweed Nucleus versus Conventional Method

Conventional Seaweed farming National Seaweed Nucleus
• Seaweed farming carried out by family members (small scale)
• Culturing seaweed using long line and raffia string
• Very low drying seaweed capacity
• Dried seaweed trade through middleman (low selling price)
 
• Attract new investors and upgrade existing seaweed companies to commercial scale
• Group existing and new local seaweed farmers and provide training under the investing company (train the trainer method)
• Up scaling small farmer to commercial scale and replicating to identified site
• Provide infrastructure (Drying platform, storage…) to increase drying capacity and quality
• Apply new and improve technology using Eco-friendly Long Line Technology (EFLT) which increase quality and production
• Setup seaweed collection center in each district to monitor seaweed quality and control market price
 

Key outcomes of the EPP

   
• Increase production of raw seaweed material from 207,850 mt (2010) to 94,050,000 mt by 2020 (wet weight) (total culturing areas : 18,000 ha).
• Increase GNI from RM23,330 (2012) to RM419,944 by 2020.
• Generate 13,788 job opportunity (Farm and factory workers, management and supporting staff).
• Create BO (downstream and upstream processing).
• Increase livelihood of local community (poverty eradication)
• Produce and develop high quality seaweed brand.
   
 

What needs to be done?

 
  • Increase training capacity to produce sufficient man power labor skilled.
• Setup basic infrastructure.
• Produce and branding high quality local dry seaweed for higher or standard global and local market price.
• Introduce Good Aquaculture Practices.
 
 

Key Challenges

 
  • Lack of man power labor skilled (require 520 workers/1000ha)
• Sustainable supply of high quality seedling (seedling with high carrageen content).
• Fluctuations of seaweed global and local market price.
• Meet international quality requirement (EU standard).
 
   

Mitigation Plan

    • Provide basic infrastructure and culturing areas to attract investor and to skill labor.
• To increase training capacity and capability
• On-going RND for the improvement of local seaweed species and venture in new seaweed varieties.
• Control price of seaweed by government and produce local high quality seaweed brand.

Seaweed Nucleus

 

EPP 1 : NATIONAL SEAWEED NUCLEUS of Malaysia


The proposed National Seaweed Nucleus is a Private driven project which main objective is to develop seaweed farms and enhancing seaweed value chain, creating BO (Aqua-tourism, downstream & Upstream seaweed industry.

The Department of Fisheries Sabah has identified four areas in the East Coast of Sabah which has high potential to be developed as commercial scale seaweed farming areas :
1) Lahad Datu
2) Semporna
3) Kunak
4) Tawau


The key outcome of the project area:
• Produce Malaysian Seaweed Standard (Piawai Rumpai Laut Malaysia) from 207,850 mt (2010) to 94,050,000 mt by 2020 (wet weight)
• Improve yield from 2.6 m.t/ha to 5.5/m.t/ha by 2020. (dried)
• Increase local people income RM6,570,000 by 2020.
• Increase GNI from RM23,330 (2012) to RM419,954,000 by 2020
• Create Business Opportunity (downstream and upstream processing)
• Aqua tourism
• Job opportunity (Farm & factory workers, Management & supporting staff).
• Poverty eradication.
