Seaweed researchers, companies and enthusiasts from 9 different
countries gathered for the 6th time in Grenaa, Denmark for the
Nordic Seaweed Conference the 12th -
13th of October 2016.
This year the conference started off with a special focus
on seaweed in feed - a subject which was opened by
professorJohn O'Doherty, University College Dublin and his research
on health benefits of seaweed in feed for piglets.
After a number of interesting talks on feed and also
pretreatment a poster session followed. Networking was carried out
while different tastes such as pesto, icecream and bread with
seaweed were enjoyed. The second day of the conference started
with a field trip to the producer of food products with
seaweed in Grenaa - Nordisk Tang.
The people behind Nordisk Tang met at the Nordic Seaweed
Conference in 2013 and since then they have established a succesful
company with gastronomic delights which they sell in Denmark and
export to eg. Germany and the US.
