I fell in love with the sea since I was little, this made me want to dedicate my life to the preservation and sustainable development of marine and fishing resources. Our trajectory as a team at La Patrona has always been linked to food quality and aquaculture from an environmental, social and economic sustainability perspective. We have worked in both public and private companies, including the university, where, in addition to studying, we investigated issues related to marine reserves and their fisheries management. After living and diving all over the seas, from the Canary Islands, the Azores, to the marvellous Great Barrier Reef, we decided to go for our Spanish coasts undertaking a unique adventure with seaweed. Our interest in healthy living and healthy eating, as well as our taste for new flavours, led us to take an interest in algae. In Algas La Patrona we enjoy each step of the value chain, we love to get into the sea to select the best specimens and the best areas for harvesting, we supervise the entire process, we do the washing, dehydrating and final packaging in compostable containers, so each day is different from the previous one. We have always been fascinated by seaweed because of its great potential for use in practically all sectors and industries, from mitigating climate change to moving airplanes.
We call ourselves Algas La Patrona (The Patroness Algae) because as women who love the sea, we wanted to empower women who work at sea. We are in Cambados, a beautiful village located in the estuary of Arousa, surrounded by beaches, white sandy coves, and natural cliffs from which you can see how algae grow. In addition, you can enjoy green forests, rivers and traditional constructions such as mills, granaries and farmhouses.
The Rías Baixas are known all over the world because they produce not only our sea vegetables, but also the best fish and seafood. Here, expert divers select the best examples of each species and collect them in a way that ensures the growth of future algae.
