A Sea Vegetable Saga

Sunday, February 19, 2017
1:00pm – 2:00pm

Storrs Campus
Biology/Physics Building, Room 130

Interest in sea vegetables is increasing for both their nutritional and environmental benefits. While the majority of products meant for human consumption are imported, efforts are underway to support domestic production of sea vegetables for food. Sea Grant has supported nearly 30 years of research on the cultivation of local, native species and is now helping interested aquaculture businesses apply the research findings to grow new sea vegetable products in Connecticut and beyond. Join Anoushka Concepcion, Assistant Extension Educator in Marine Aquaculture, who will tell the story of why sea vegetables and their cultivation has become popular in recent years and the industry’s current status.
