Seaweed farming on Nusa Lembongan – Bali

April 2011
Nusa Lembongan used to be an off-the-beaten-track little island off the southeast coast of Bali, mostly visited by day-trippers for some water-sport or diving the surrounding reefs. Tourism wasn’t any significant source of income for the locals yet, who mainly lived from fishing and growing seaweed. Over the last five years the community has lost interest in growing seaweed, due to the impact of climate change on crop yields and particularly also because of new opportunities in tourism.
