edible seaweeds - laver and sea lettuceSeashore foraging

Seafood is plentiful for the wild food forager from edible seaweeds to shellfish.

There are no poisonous seaweeds in Britain but there are some that are better than others to eat! We have several good ones growing in the North East. Some need cooking; some can be eaten raw. We also have plentiful shellfish but you need to take care about when and from where you collect them. We'll make sure you know how to keep safe so you can enjoy this wonderful and tasty food resource.
