Why Seaweed? Why Maine?
With 30+ kelp farms and growing, Maine leads the nation in seaweed aquaculture. Lobstermen, mussel growers, oyster farmers and others plant their lines in November for harvest in the springtime.
Maine's intrepid wild harvesters scramble over rocks during extreme low tides to collect dulse, Irish moss, kombu, sea lettuce and wakame. It's a way of life that goes back thousands of years along this coast.
