This week we are pleased to welcome Marty Odlin to tell us how Running Tide is employing technology and automated systems to grow and deploy kelp for permanent carbon sequestration in the deep ocean.
Marty Odlin is Founder and CEO of Running Tide, a Maine-based company seeking to harness, accelerate, and scale the most impactful restorative processes naturally at work in the ocean to build a climate positive future. Marty studied robotics at Dartmouth, was a Director at Columbia’s Center for Sustainable Engineering, managed a fleet of five fishing boats, and his family has been in the offshore fishing business for generations.
