Sea Weed In Ireland

Hello,

I live in Dublin, Ireland, and I'm starting to be more and more curious by seaweed foraging. I recently foraged Egg Wrack near Malahide ( for info in case some Irish see the post haha) and I'd like to discover other species. I'm struggling a bit to find good spots so I was wondering if anybody had a good recommendation for guides, books or even associations related to seaweed foraging for north atlantic europeans region or even better Ireland.

Just looking to learn more about seaweed ! I would appreciate any guidance on the topic.

Have a good day !

I've built a seaweed hatchery (North new jersey) and I am looking for seaweed spores

I know that I missed the right time for sugar kelp, but I'm hoping to get some ideas on what we can focus on... Now instead of later.

If you have any ideas on what we can explore in terms of obtaining seaweed spores please let me know. You can also dm me.

Thanks

Identification help request - Half Moon Bay Area, CA

Hello, I am sorry but this is the only picture I have of all the seaweed we found at a beach at Half Moon Bay, CA today. If anyone can help identify these we will greatly appreciate it and will help us further cherish this memory. I know that #1 is a Turkish towel!

Odd question - I'm building a seaweed hatchery. Is it ok to take some water (50 gallons) out of the ocean from a dock or beach?

Or will the local government be mad at me or something?

Need help identifying these.

I've been reading about Irish Sea Moss lately and live in Nova Scotia, so I went to the beach today to see what I could find. Grabbed a few samples but I'm not totally sure how to tell what is what just yet.

Why dried Gracilaria has different colours despite being of the same genus and species as below? Some are light yellow while others are dark rust/blackish almost. Does it affect the quality or chemical components of the seaweed?

Anyone know what this is?

It's a pink flower looking thing growing on seaweed which is growing on a pontoon and excuse the language, kind of looks like a wrinkly ballsack. I know nothing about things that grow/ live in the sea but last I was aware seaweed didn't grow flowers... I'm curious. Also if it helps anyone who might have some sort of idea, this is in New Zealand

I want to try to spore and grow seaweed at home, what equipment do I need?

Hey all, I am new to the hobby and would like some pointers. I am interested in a project and trying to spore and grow wild seaweed in a tank at home. Mainly ulva species. I am not sure what sort of equipment I would need.

The list I have right now consists of:
-tank
-aerator
-chiller/temp control
-lighting

If anyone has any experience with seaweeds I would love to have some advice on a basic setup as I am pretty new to aquaculture.

Any guides or literature would be a great help too! Thanks all
