Things to Know
Maine's Natural Resources Need to Be Protected And Managed
The Maine Supreme Court has ruled that rockweed is private property in Ross v. Acadian Seaplants. This means that all Maine riparian landowners whose deeds include rights to the low water mark own their rockweed. It is now up to individual landowners to decide to sell or protect their seaweed. Protecting your seaweed is fairly easy-- register and post. Selling you seaweed lets you support traditional Maine marine communities, but also allows you to determine when and how much of your rockweed is harvested. If you register and wish to sell you seaweed, we will come up with common sense harvesting guidelines that respect your enjoyment of your property while permitting our local seaweed harvesters to make a living while respecting your wishes for sustainable harvesting practices. We will also assist you in managing other seaweeds that may be on your lands such as kelp, dulse, nori, and others.
