The Practical Seaweed Farmer Conference
The Practical Seaweed Farmer Conference will take place Friday, July 27, 2018 at the Strand Theater in Rockland, ME. The conference is open to existing, new, or interested seaweed farmers, or anyone curious about learning more. Seaweed aquaculture is a small but growing new industry in the United States, and Maine has been a leader in the development of crops, techniques, products, and markets. The conference aims to build networks, share information and ideas, and provide training to build a strong, sustainable, responsible industry in Maine and beyond. Seaweed is a winter crop, provides environmental benefits and economic opportunities, and is a healthy, versatile, renewable resource with great potential for growth.
