seaweed foraging

bittbitt Raw Newbie

Anybody know anything about seaweed foraging? I see it on the beaches but I don’t really know which ones are edible and which are not. There is a workshop I could take around here but it costs $500. I would rather not spend that much. BTW, I live in Seattle.

    I WISH I could forage seaweed around here!

    What a great idea!

  • Hey, I just moved to Seattle and also want to learn about foraging sea vegetables. Did you find out anything about it by now?

    I haven’t found out anything and I posted a similar question a few weeks ago too. Gonna check out that link above. I guess I’ll have to find some locals who do it when I get to Hawaii.

    Hey, I found this interesting link. If you Google: edible+seaweed+wild or similar you’ll find something interesting sources. Here’s a cool site:http://www.hawaii.edu/reefalgae/publications/ediblelimu/index.htm although it’s lacking in pictures.

    Newbie forager here, the only advice I have for you is to not eat the seaweed on the beach. You must cut your own, fresh, if you want it to be safe.

  • hey bitt, every single sea vegetable on the beach is edible. it just whether the beach is clean or not. i just harvested some yesterday from trinidad in humboldt county. its very clean up there so im fine with it. as long as you trust that the beach is clean, go for it. hehe -zack

  • Hey everyone, I just moved to Seattle too! I went to a beach off Puget Sound a few weeks ago and I was wondering the exact same thing.
