Seaweed Processing and Marketing Task Force
Seafood Safety and Technology - News

New York Sea Grant created the Seaweed Processing and Marketing Task Force in January of 2021 to develop a series of resources to assist NY seaweed producers in understanding the regulations governing the sale and marketing of seaweed products in New York. 

The task force was made up of various industry, academic, and regulatory agency representatives with control over seaweed production, processing, and sales. 

All resources created are meant to assist in getting seaweed products to market.
