Kelp to the kitchen: Bringing seaweed and chefs together

2021 eeBLUE aquaculture literacy awardee - Saco, Maine

Atlantic Sea Farms offsite link, with partners from Maine Sea Grant offsite link, the Henry P. Kendall Foundation offsite link, and New England Ocean Cluster offsite link are educating chefs, food-industry personnel, seaweed producers, and the broader public on the culinary uses of domestically grown fresh seaweed. Through virtual cooking demonstrations and workshops, the team is highlighting the sustainable nature of Atlantic Sea Farms’ expanding seaweed industry and elevating knowledge of seaweed aquaculture. To hear more from the partners themselves, visit their January 2023 Harvest stories post: Seaweed farming brings hope in the face of climate change.

With support from eeBLUE, 'Kelp to Kitchen' creates dynamic content and experiences that encourage consumers and chefs to include kelp in everyday dishes, both at home and in the industrial kitchen.
