The Seaweed Forager

A guide for how to best forage for seaweed, the types of seaweed that can be eaten and some easy recipes

New Zealand’s rocky coastline has abundant sea life, including delicious edible seaweeds. Most of us don’t even realise that the seaweeds we find on our beaches are edible, nutritious, and delicious.

Rebecca’s book encourages us to take a little bite from the bountiful food sources that are found in seawater rockpools. The book describes a range of edible seaweeds that are easily found on most beaches. It includes description of where each seaweed will be found, how to collect it, and how to use it.

Seaweed is a super food with unequalled amounts of nutrients

Seaweed is a vegan superfood with very few calories. It is high in a range of nutrients and contains many concentrated and bioavailable minerals, trace elements, vitamins, enzymes, antioxidants and omega-3 and -6 fatty acids while offering a complete protein that is fat free and relatively easy to digest.

The Seaweed Forager is for anyone who has been overcome by wonder as they stared into a seaside rock pool
