tasteMAKERS - Atlantic Sea Farms // Portland, Maine

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.
