Seaweed — another strand



Thank you to Dina for sending me a link to a video on mechanical seaweed harvesting off the west coast of Norway and the damage that is causing to the seabed.

Whilst watching it I noticed this video which gives information on seaweeds and explains what they are presently used for.

I am me. What do I like? Colour Shapes Textures Paintings, photographs, sculptures, woven tapestries, wonderful materials. The love of materials probably comes from my father who was a textile buyer, and I grew up hearing the names of mills and manufacturers which sounded magical and enticing. Glass in all its soft and vibrant colours and flowing shapes, even sixties glass which makes its own proud statement. A book I can immerse myself in. Meals with family or friends with lots of chat and laughter (and probably a bottle or two of wine). The occasional trip abroad to experience the sights, sounds, food, conversation, quality of light and warmth of other countries. To revel in differences and be amazed by similarities. I like to create and to experience, to try and to achieve. And then there are words – read, heard, written at my keyboard, or scrawled on sticky notes, or along the edges of dog-eared supermarket receipts excavated from the unexplored nooks of my handbag. What do I dislike? Cold Snow Bad design Fast food Condescension

    Thank you! I didn’t know they farm seaweeds in the Philippines too. I know there are quite a number of seaweeds that is we eat back home. But I heard they are getting scarce, people has to harvest them in deeper waters.

  2. How is seaweed eaten in the Philippines, Bebs1? Is it eaten as a veg — a bit like cabbage, or how? There must be a great deal eaten if they are becoming scarce.

    Great addition to the seaweed postings.

    The video offers such a wealth of knowledge about seaweed. Amazing what they fit into six minutes.

  5. I suspected many people were like me and knew very little about the uses of seaweed. Now we can all nod sagely about it when mentioned.

    Video interests me. I’d like to do a video promotion for my book. Have attempted it and was reasonable pleased with the outcome, but the resolution isn’t right so need to do some work. Perhaps buy a book about video so I’m better informed. Lots of potential.

  6. Hello there, just became aware of your blog through Google,
    and found that it is really informative. I am gonna watch out for brussels.

    I will be grateful if you continue this in future. Numerous people will be benefited from your writing.
