  • Good for the Earth 

Kelp boosts flavor and richness in foods and is densely nutritious.  Full of vitamins, minerals, iodine, and fiber, Alaskan kelp will make your body feel good.  Kelp is one of the earth's most sustainable foods.  It needs no fresh water, fertilizer, or land to grow.  

Based in Juneau Alaska, Barnacle’s Original Kelp Salsa is like nothing you’ve tried before. Classic flavor with a complex composition that will leave you wanting more.

Barnacle's first goal is to make delicious food, using abundant and sustainable local food sources like wild kelp. By preserving kelp in the form of salsas and pickles, they are bringing this renewable resource to your kitchen year round. 

The first ingredient is fresh bull kelp harvested from the pristine waters of Southeast Alaska. Crisp, umami-rich kelp gives this salsa a savory flavor and fresh texture that sets it apart from other jarred salsas. The kelp provides a craveable, healthy boost to this low calorie, highly nutritious cupboard staple.

Bull Kelp

You’re probably thinking, kelp? Like, seaweed? Yes!

Harvested from Alaska’s pristine and icy waters, bull kelp, or Nereocystis luetkeana, is one of the most common seaweeds along our coastline. It’s snappy, salty and savory, with a crisp bite. Bull kelp grows annually, from spore to mature plant in a single year. As it grows, it attaches to the ocean floor via a “hold-fast”—a root-like growth that clings to rocks or other anchorages. From there, the stalk can grow up to 80 feet, with a floating bulb at the surface. Bull kelp forests create vital habitat for fish, sea urchins and starfish. Sea otters often wrap kelp strands around their bodies to secure them during rough weather.
