We invite any person, organization or business interested in or already involved in using, conducting research or learning more about these possibilities to join us in this exploration. Our goals are to: • Transform this into a national opportunity rather than ignore it into a disaster. • Identify who is doing what to avoid redundancy and optimize partnerships. • Develop skills necessary to convert “waste products” to opportunitiesThere is enough Sargassum Seaweed for each of us to solve one piece of the puzzle and create some kind of opportunity.
