Tridge summary

In Jangheung-gun, Jeollanam-do, 5 out of 10 eup/myeon border the sea. Due to the development of mudflats, a lot of seaweed and shellfish are produced, such as seaweed, seaweed, clams, and cockles. In order to protect the sea and produce safe food, Jangheung-gun started eco-friendly ‘Musan Laver’ farming in 2008. In the process of farming, laver that is not treated with acid to remove other seaweeds other than laver is called Musangim. Instead of using organic acid, it is a farming method in which algae other than laver are killed by turning the laver from time to time and exposing it to the air. According to Jangheung-gun on the 19th, Musan laver, which does not use organic acids, is playing a filial role in improving fishery income by raising stock prices with good laver. It is having an effect that exceeds expectations. When we stopped using ‘san’ in seaweed farming, the sea responded. Fish spawning grounds increased due to the proliferation of colonies that supply oxygen in the sea, and the catch of shellfish such as cockles, clams, and key clams also increased. Production of other fish species such as octopus also increased.
