Langkawi is home to priceless seaweed

Never has so much passion been portrayed in transforming Langkawi into the hub for seaweed production in Peninsular Malaysia.

This was nevertheless the case for the 20 fishermen from the Persatuan Pengusaha Rumpai Laut Langkawi whose hard work and dedication has since paid off for them.

For starters, they are producing more than 100 cages of seaweed with maximum capacity of 700 kilograms per cage.

Thus generating an income of more than RM3,000 a month and at full harvest, an income of RM752,000.
