Just seaweed is run by Iain Mckellar, one of the UK’s leading seaweed foragers. We have been selling our seaweeds since 2007 from the Isle of Bute on the west coast of Scotland. We harvest by hand natural wild edible sea vegetables and seaweed for spa bathing. Our fresh seaweed is carefully cut by hand, packaged then posted to our customers all over the world from the UK to the USA.
Seaweeds are plants (marine algae) that live in seawater. They don't have roots and they feed from the water around them.
Just like some plants, most seaweeds have seasons. Kelp can grow at the unbelievable rate of 1 to 2 feet per day under the right conditions. Marine algae reproduce by giving off spores, although most seaweeds are seasonal. Some types can live for 20 years. Seaweeds are sometimes called kelp, sea vegetables, wrack, sea algae or marine algae.
There are three main types:Red Brown and green. Some are 30ft long; others only a few inches. Each type has its own characteristic texture and flavour. Seaweeds can be found from the high tide line down to a depth of 60m below the surface.
Can you eat seaweed if you are allergic to iodine? Read this for more information.
