Seaweed for Health, Beauty & Wellbeing

05 May

Sargassum the Invasive Seaweed

Sargassum muticum / Wireweed is appearing more frequently on Irish shores.

This brown seaweed came from Japan, it is believed, in commercial oyster spat It's edible - quite tasty - but is on the list of invasive alien species.

 

I'm researching it and would appreciate info if you come across it - name of beach, extent. It's wiry/stringy, with little nodules along the frond, grows quite long, usually in rock pools. Pics here may help
