Well, if not, it should! As part of a research project that he leads for Connecticut Sea Grant, Charles Yarish and his collaborators have successfully grown and harvested Gacilaria , an economically valuable edible seaweed, in the Sound. Gracilaria is a source of agar, an extract used as a nutrient and stabilizer in foods for humans and shrimp. It's also known as agar-agar, for growing cultures in labs.
