There is already a small, but firmly established market for edible seaweeds in the United States that has good prospects for expansion. With the development of a system of offshore culture supported by spore hatcheries and a local processing capability, production of good quality nori in Puget Sound seems entirely feasible. Such a system should be able to satisfy current domestic consumption and produce a surplus that would be available for export to other countries.
