Gabriela Bradt, a fisheries specialist at the University of New Hampshire, is ready to make Kelp the “Kale of the Sea”.
According to her interview in The Salt:
“The American varieties of kelp and other seaweeds, though, are thought to be milder in flavor than ones found in Asian waters. But they contain the same “nutritional smorgasbord” of other sea plants — they’re packed with vitamins and minerals including iodine, calcium, magnesium and vitamin B12.”
Kelp and seaweed are already prominent products in the local scene here in Maine. With the excitement still building for the Maine Sail Freight, we think you should give it a taste!
the seaweed man!

Sometimes a few words can capture the essence of what makes up a person better than an extended interview. Such is the case with Larch Hanson, a Maine seaweed harvester/poet who shared with us his beautiful way of life.
