FBP Rockweed Meeting
April 2, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Frenchman Bay Partners are hosting an educational meeting to learn about rockweed. What information exists about the biology, ecology, and harvesting of rockweed? In addition, what are the legal, upland owner, and harvester issues surrounding this species and the intertidal? No decisions are being made at this meeting; it is an information sharing opportunity.
