Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Macrocystis pyrifera are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Macrocystis pyrifera, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Macrocystis pyrifera, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
