The Wando Archipelago, south-west of the Korean Peninsula, is made up of 200 islands of various sizes, some of them inhabited, others deserted. The main occupation of the island dwellers is marine farming, particularly the cultivation of edible seaweed. Before farming became popular, the locals harvested only naturally grown seaweeds. Like the Japanese and Chinese, the Koreans are major consumers of seaweed. In 2004, South Korea produced 71,000 tons of seaweed. Some of them are dried and sold as sheets for wrapping sushi, others are used as an ingredients in soups and sauces. Seaweed is a rich source of protein and vitamin, earning the nickname "vegetable of the sea". Seaweed cultivation is a low-cost agricultural activity and the benefits are long-term and sustainable, since it doesn’t pollute the environment. All the farmers needs is clean water. Today, the FAO encourages seaweed cultivation worldwide as a means to reduce poverty and food shortages.
