Aquaculture in Korea

In 2013, Sea Grant and NOAA sponsored a research exchange between the United States and South Korea’s National Fisheries Research and Development Institute. The goal was to learn about the culture of sea cucumbers and sargassum, a type of macroalgae or seaweed, in Korea and how the technology might be transferred to the northeastern United States. Below are the final reports resulting from the exchange.
