From Farm . . .
With 40+ kelp farms and growing, Maine leads the nation in seaweed farming. Lobstermen, shellfish farmers and others plant kelp lines in fall for harvest in April.
And Wild . . .
Maine's wild harvesters collect dulse, Irish moss, kombu, and wakame at extreme low tides. It's a way of life that goes back thousands of years along this coast.
Why seaweed? Why Maine?
