I acknowledge the traditional kaitiaki guardians of Aotearoa New Zealand and pay my respects to the kaumātua elders, past and present.

I place great value on the Māori people’s spiritual connection to this country and recognise the importance of land, water, coastline and culture for all.

May we find peace on earth.

I would dearly like to express my deep gratitude to my partner, Malcolm, who has endured many years of my relentless conversations about seaweed and the book, with all its parts.

Also without my designer, Marie, and my editor, Amanda, The Seaweed Forager would not have been possible. I feel that they, too, are custodians of this book.
