NH Sea Grant and UNH Cooperative Extension are working to help people in New Hampshire understand:
1. The benefits of and possibilities offered by the use of seaweeds in cooking
2. The way in which seaweeds can be used in aquaculture
Seaweed as Food
NH Sea Grant has partnered with UNH Cooperative Extension, Maine Sea Grant, and Stages at One Washington (Dover, NH) to develop events for people to learn how to handle, identify and prepare several different species of sea vegetables. Recent workshops have featured an introduction to the types of seaweeds found on the NH coast and demonstrations of how to create creative and healthy dishes using sea vegetables (what seaweed is called once prepared) as an ingredient.
