Severine’s Sustainable Seaweed Interview on goop

Maine determines her course in the seaweed economy:

What would a conservation-minded seaweed sector look like in Maine?

Siting and scale considerations

Local ownership and control, transferable/ saleable leases?

Educational programs/ marine literacy for new entrants to the sector?

Coastline and forested uplands, low industrial pollution

Cold, clean water relative to the eastern seaboard with upwellings.

Strong existing fisheries infrastructure, organizational resources, community commitment

Proximity to Boston/ NYC and New England marketplace of consumers willing to try new foods!

Existing supply chain/ trucking infrastructure for other fisheries ( much cheaper than in Alaska!) (proximity to water/boat transport--less Co2, increased freshness)
