Seaweed Farming, Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Lembongan

3.6
#16 of 27 in Outdoors in Nusa Lembongan
Follow a day in the life of a seaweed farmer at Seaweed Farming, Nusa Lembongan, where you'll learn about the lucrative local trade. The farming relies on two factors, the ebb and flow of the tide and the growth cycle of different kinds of seaweed. Seaweed can only be harvested at low tide, so the farmers must plan their day accordingly--even if that means going out in the boats in the middle of the night. The growth cycle varies from 15 to 30 days. Visit the farm and see the operation unfold, from the white fishing boats that dot the bay to the freshly cropped seaweed spread out on the beach to dry.

    The view of the surrounding area is beautiful and you can admire the small submarine pens in turquoise waters. Not much else to see. Places near the yellow bridge.

    Nice to see, especially at low tide, but we were told that it is not running anymore because the plants to grow slowly. (probably by influence of the quality of the sea water), and because for a kilo of dried seaweed about only 20 cents get paid, so one can not life. The shacks around it and were used by farmers are also extinct and empty. It is there further dry arid affair.
