Atlantic Sea Farms // Portland, Maine
Show Episode Info
Atlantic Sea Farms partners with lobstermen up and down the rocky coast of Maine to farm kelp in the region's icy waters. The cultivation of this fast-growing, highly nutritious sea vegetable is creating new economic opportunities for fisheries in Maine while also benefiting the ocean: as kelp grows, it pulls in carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous and outputs oxygen, creating a halo of remediated water around every farm. Plus, it's delicious and chefs are finding creative ways to incorporate kelp into their menus.
