The weather conditions add to the complexity. Rain during the drying process, for example, reduces the quality — and hence the price — of algae, since valuable minerals (alginates, for instance) are leached away. Then the algae are dried in a warehouse. A boat from Arkhangelsk will come to collect it in September.Sergei Ermokhin
