Foraging Edible Seaweed

Growing in our oceans and lining our beaches, seaweed is familiar to us all. But what many of us don’t realise is the nutritional benefit that seaweed offers.

The edible seaweed industry in Australia is in its infancy. It’s only recently that scientific research is being conducted into the nutritional benefits of seaweed and how we can start incorporating it into our diets.

Southern Australia has more species of seaweed than any other region, with 62% of species not growing anywhere else in the world. This means that we’re starting from scratch when it comes to understanding the health benefits and nutritional values that it holds.
