From the Ocean to your Plate

Samoa is embracing the nutritional power of local seaweeds through a new culinary initiative, aiming to enhance public health and culinary diversity. Partnering with the University of the Sunshine Coast, the Fisheries Division of Samoa's Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries is developing recipes featuring limu fuafua and limu a’au.

This partnership aims to integrate these seaweeds into everyday cooking, highlighting their nutritional advantages. A series of public tasting events, alongside the development of a dedicated recipe book, seeks to promote limu as a staple in the Samoan diet, addressing health concerns and encouraging a shift towards more sustainable food sources. This effort not only underscores the importance of traditional resources in contemporary health and wellness strategies but also positions Samoa at the forefront of innovative culinary practices within the Pacific region.
