Algae International: Iranian Spirulina Farmers!

Hello fellow algae-nauts!

Here at AlgaeLab we have helped algae farmers around the world, but this farm is special because of its location, Iran. Alireza and his friends have had great luck growing Spirulina for food in his rooftop greenhouse, using two raceway ponds lined with plastic.


They have been harvesting enough to provide fresh Spirulina to Alireza’s friends and family.


It’s great to have colleagues around the world. We’d like to think we’re doing our little part to promote peace between the people of our two countries.

From the heart of the chloroplast,
Dr. Baum
