The inaugural meeting of the Alaska Mariculture Cluster was held January 12, 2023, at the Hotel Captain Cook in Anchorage, Alaska. It was a great turnout, with informative presentations on the many facets of the project, kicked off by Governor Mike Dunleavy and the AFDF Executive Director, Julie Decker. There were sessions presented by the many people who have championed this project, including the Southeast Conference, State of Alaska, and representatives from the Economic Development Districts throughout Alaska. There were also several kelp farmers, including Seagrove Kelp, Barnacle Foods, Kelptastic Farms, and others.
