The article reads that the kelp will be "mown" and will be sustainable, this would seem to be a similar methods used by harvesters for eons, the kelp is cut back but the root and a short amount is left to regrow.
I know there was some controversy in County Galway and the off-shore islands regarding the granting of a permit to one company to harvest seaweed at the exculsion of locals who use it for fertiliser. I will do a bit of research next month when I am back over there.
