Summary
"An ancient and vital part of the ecosystem, seaweed is now emerging as an increasingly important source of food in a world faced with diminishing natural resources. The Seaweed Chronicles opens a window into the world of this fascinating plant by providing a look at life on the rugged shore of the Gulf of Maine, focusing not only on the plant life underwater, but also on the men and women who farm and harvest seaweed, and on the increasingly difficult task of protecting this critical natural resource against forces both natural and man-made"--
