  12. Hola Bill
    No sabia como se atrapaban las algas; una buena idea.
    Se que el sushi se prepara con algas pero no se si esta clase ­čśŐ.

    Kisses for you!!

  13. Interesting process of seaweed collection. Would like to know more about the process. Is machinery involved, or is it all done by hand?

    1. I think the process here is done by a small bunch of people, maybe a family operation. Once these nets are filled they are removed by crane and dumped into a trailer pulled by a tractor. I don't know any more info on that but hopefully I will see someone who can answer a few questions.

  14. Makes me wonder what they do with it after it's collected. There are so many uses for seaweed.

  15. Seaweeds are very important part of Asian dishes, especially in Japanese and Korean cuisine. Not very sure what particular specie is the one used for making Nori :)

  21. Seaweed has many benefits.
    Besides containing high fiber to prevent cancer.
    In our country, apart from being made into gelatin, a dessert of seaweed ice is also made.
    Thanks for sharing
    Have a nice week
