Eamer Science & Policy senior associate Claire Eamer spent some time around the northeastern shores of the North Atlantic this past summer. One of the results of her travels is a feature story in Hakai Magazine on the past and future of the northern seaweed industry.

“I didn’t know much about the seaweed business when I started the trip,” Eamer says. “I was astonished to learn how important it was to a lot of small communities in the past, and to see what people are hoping for the future.”
