Kelp Processing and Marketing
Everything is coming up kelp! From edible products to hand sanitizer (see https://kelpinghands.org/) to use in forming bioplastics, kelp is being integrated into more and more products for use in our everyday lives.
If you're a kelp farmer then, what are your options for processing and marketing your kelp?
Riley Smith of the Alaska Fisheries Development Foundation and Melissa Good from the Alaska SeaGrant program shared their knowledge on how kelp is being used in food and other products, the status of Alaska seaweed production, and what to consider for processing and marketing your kelp harvest.
