As capacity increases within Alaska’s mariculture industry to meet benchmarks for growth, the state is becoming better equipped to tackle remaining industry-wide roadblocks. One such challenge is local seaweed processing capacity and know-how. Industry entrepreneurs and workers have questions about logistics and transport, technology, capacity, and community needs.

To talk through some of these issues, Alaska Sea Grant, Alaska Mariculture Alliance, and Alaska Fisheries Development Foundation are hosting an online discussion on seaweed drying. Please join us at 9:00 am on July 28 to hear from industry experts on seaweed drying equipment, processing and markets, community capacity and needs, and how seaweed processing can be supported by the U.S. Economic Development Administration Build Back Better project. Panels will be followed by Q&A.

If you are interested in learning more about processing seaweed in Alaska, we would love to see you at this online event.
