This is our latest video on Taretråling or seaweed dredging. It details important documents (each snip has a link at the top of the page where the document can be seen in its entirety) and asks a number of fundamental questions.
We asked the havsforsknings institut some of these questions and in spite of a maximum of 21 days wait for a reply have received none. We also asked a Scottish university engaged in seaweed research if they knew anything about Thiamine deficiency related bird die offs – they had never heard of this.
It seems that there is a surprising lack of knowledge in the marine biological world about factors which could be of considerable importance when making decisions about the safety of such issues as commercial seaweed harvesting or even cultivating.
Meeting in Trondheim on Taretråling on the 19 and 20th September.
