Productivity of a seaweed farm is measured by the number of harvests a year and the biomass increase in weight (yield). Some seaweeds are harvested fully, meaning the entire biomass is removed from the site, while others are harvested partially, with some biomass remaining for further grow out. Yield is often stated in kilograms (kg) per metre (m) of line, since metric tonnes (MT) per hectare (ha) is not always a common measure among farmers.
