The seaweed-farming season in the Russian Arctic is coming to an end. It's tough work but it can be very lucrative.

Seaweed is used in medicines and cosmetics. On a good day it is possible to collect more than a ton of seaweed and farmers can make over $2,000 a month.

Filmed and edited by Maxim Lomakin. Produced by Ekaterina Venediktova.
