Essentially he said that the meeting was being held to address concerns about the impact of taretråling and in general seaweed harvesting and a much deeper concern that not enough was known about the consequences.

The next Talk was given by Henning steen – a great deal of information about the seaweed laminaria hyperborea – the one that is being harvested by the seaweed trawlers – one surprising bit of information was that some of the seaweed was dated at nearly 20 years of age
