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.
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?
