In 2009, sea farmers in 28 countries cultivated and harvested 17 million metric tons of seaweed in nearshore waters. In 2010, the United States became the 29th country to farm seaweed with the installation of the first U.S. kelp farm in Maine waters. Paul Dobbins will share his experiences in developing the technology, farms, and seaweed products that support this new Maine initiative. Maine farm-raised kelp will be served.
