Dr. Robin Hadlock Seeley, Assistant Director and Senior Research Associate at the Shoals Marine Laboratory (Cornell University/UNH) on Appledore Island co-founded the Rockweed Coalition in 2008, a citizen group based in eastern Maine supporting rockweed habitat conservation. There are several issues which she has addressed in her report which include the questions: Who owns the rockweed? What is the state doing to manage the harvest and protect coastal habitat? Can towns prohibit rockweed harvesting?
