Safety concerns regarding reported toxicity of artificial antioxidants lead the search for novel natural antioxidants. In this context, seaweeds have been receiving increasing attention as a promising source of antioxidants such as phenolic compounds (e.g. phenolic acids and flavonoids), carotenoids (e.g. fucoxanthin and β-carotene), and phycobiliproteins. Nevertheless, seaweed composition generally presents marked seasonal variations. The present study aimed at evaluating seasonal variations in the antioxidant composition and activity of sugar kelp, Saccharina latissima, cultivated at two different sites; in close proximity to a blue mussel and rainbow trout farm (IMTA), and at a reference/control site (REF), outside Horsens fjord, Denmark.
