Mike Hill, of the Associated Press Television News Service, reports that the seaweed industry is booming in Maine, where more than 20 companies grow or collect marine algae for a wide variety of uses including fertilizer, animal feed, supplements and food sold on store shelves as well as trendy restaurants. Maine harvesters collected a record 17 million pounds of seaweed last year. Farmers like Tollef Olson start off with spores in a lab and string them out from a boat. The kelp will stay submerged in the bay and grow through the winter.
