Catxalot is a small company in Grebbestad that has really put seaweed on the menu in Sweden. Book a course or event with cooking included, or a lecture on seaweed, all with or without accommodation.
Swedish seaweed - environmentally friendly food
Catxalot has put Swedish seaweed, in particular from Bohuslän, on the world map and aims to be the leading source of knowledge on seaweed as a food product in Sweden. Interest in cooking with seaweed has boomed, these green algae plants being tasty, healthy, beautiful and a very environmentally friendly resource. For several years, Catxalot supplied seaweed to the country's top restaurants with the motto: "Seaweed, sea and love"!
Courses at sea, on land and in restaurant kitchens
Catxalot arranges courses and events, gives lectures and trains new seaweed entrepreneurs, and is now opening a branch in Grundsund on the West Coast. Here is a small selection of the courses you can book:
- Seaweed safari
- Seaweed kayak tours
- Coastal foraging
- Private courses and events
If you are interested in training as a certified seaweed guide, Catxalot offers a Masterclass: "Seaweed foraging, food & health" - more course information here!

For Catxalot, sustainability means something that will last well into the future. What we do today can be done tomorrow, in 10 or in 100 years’ time, without any negative impact. The entire business concept is based on this idea, which is an essential aspect of harvesting wild seaweed. Welcome to Catxalot!
