Limu Manauea (ogo, gracilaria)

Ola has many meanings in Hawaiian, among them are life, health, well-being; alive, living; heal, survive, thrive. Each design in the Ola Collection is inspired by something that sustained and helped the ancient Hawaiians thrive.

Seaweeds, called limu in Hawaiian, are kinds of marine algae. They form the basis of the food web on reefs and rocky shores. Limu are found in many marine environments from tidepools to deep reef slopes. We have over 600 different species of seaweeds in Hawaii. In Hawaii, Limu Manauea is an endemic red algae that found along Hawai’i’s shorelines up to 12 feet deep, and is one of the most widely used limu, often used to make poke. Also called Ogo (the japanese version) the two seaweeds are used interchangeably. Limu manauea grows 4-6″ while ogo is taller at 10-12″. This crunchy healthy seaweed is over-harvested due to its popularity, so it is illegal to gather it when in its reproductive stage (when it has bumps).
