There are many firms in Biddeford that experiment, innovate, and invent new products and new ways to see the world. Among these are two businesses that cultivate and harvest seaweed to create new food products. Ocean’s Balance is dedicated to sustaining Maine’s fishing industry in the face of a warming climate. Atlantic Sea Farms began in 2009 with the goal of diversifying ocean harvest that can positively impact the ocean. Both of these companies benefit traditional fishing families in a way that improves the health of the sea.
