Nordic Seaweed Conference 2018




More than 100 participants engaged in seaweeds

Reasearchers and industries are increasingly becoming engaged in seaweeds. This year's conference counted more than 100 participants from 10 different countries from New Zealand in the South to Norway and Iceland in the North. 


A seaweed market with seaweed ice cream, facial cream, pesto, chips and even a chair followed by a special circus dinner spiced the conference this year.
