LCN Meet & Greet: The Seaweed Commons
Join kelp harvesters from Seaweed Commons for the second LCN Meet & Greet to learn more about changing seaweed economies and their role in the marine environment. We will discuss existing and emergent seaweed markets, case studies on seaweed biodiversity and disease, and projects underway to promote a more sustainable seaweed sector. This webinar invites the broader marine community of LCN into the conversation around localized, ecological seaweed systems and how we can be in collaboration with other seafood producers.

About Seaweed Commons:
Seaweed Commons seeks to form ecological seaweed coalitions, support and inform public discourse, increase algal literacy, and advocate for appropriately scaled, just seaweed economies. As seaweed becomes an increasingly valuable resource for a wide variety of culinary, industrial, and cosmetic applications, its role in the public trust and the marine environment are emergent and subject to industrial exploitation.
