gNORIh is A Precious Present from MOTHER SEA
The seeded nets, piled up to 25 to 30 layers, are gradually reduced in the number of layers, finally to a single layer.
At the end of raising, some amount of young Nori plants are kept at a freezing temperature. The plants grown 2 to 3 cm are dried for half a day to 20`30% moisture, put into a plastic bag with minimum air, and stored in a freezer. Even after two to three months, the Nori plants can naturally begin to grow again after taken back to seawater.
With succeeding harvests, Nori becomes harder, or reduces its quality. By replacing old nets with the freeze-stored ones, still young Nori can be harvested a few months later. This method extends the growing/harvest season, and the best quality Nori can be enjoyed over a longer period, as well as with a larger amount of annual production.
