About Research on Seaweeds
Irish Seaweed Research Group (ISRG) cover
Mission Our main goals are:
To INVESTIGATE and understand the chemistry, biology and ecology of the species we work on, with fundamental and applied research.
To maintain and create new SYNERGIES with other research groups at national and international level.
To study seaweed RESOURCES at local and national level, and to communicate their value to national authorities and industries that promote increasing use of seaweeds without undermining the important ecological roles they play in the environment.
To GROW as a team, in knowledge and experience, by keeping the doors open to new ideas and collaboration.
Description This group was established in 1994 by Prof. Michael D. Guiry as the Irish Seaweed Industry Organisation (ISIO), which operated as the connecting bridge between the seaweed industry and research centres in Ireland. In 1998, when Prof. Guiry took direction of the Martin Ryan Institute for Marine Science, and also under the recommendations of the National Seaweed Forum Report (2000), a seaweed research group was established, the Irish Seaweed Centre (ISC). Today, under the direction of Prof. Mark Johnson we introduce you to our new website, our new logo and our new name, the Irish Seaweed Research Group. We hope you enjoy it!
