Seaweed has been eaten for thousands of years by people all over the world, and it can be considered a tasty and healthy food item. This is the conclusion from professor Ole G. Mouritsen, Department of Physics, Chemistry and Pharmacy at the University of Southern Denmark, who has scientifically studied the species dulse (Palmaria palmata). Dulse has traditionally been eaten by populations along North Atlantic coasts in countries such as Iceland, Ireland, England, Scotland, France, Norway...

In 2005 researchers at the University of Gothenburg and Stockholm University discovered a new species of seaweed. The species, which was named Fucus radicans, evolved from a bladder wrack (Fucus vesiculosus) ancestor from the Baltic Sea. Detailed studies of Fucus radicans show that, from an evolutionary perspective, it was formed extremely rapidly: the species was formed less than 2,500 years ago, and probably as recently as about 400 years ago. This discovery is one of few examples of...

A New Zealand research team has produced data that could improve predictions of climate change, after discovering sea ice extended further north in the Southern Ocean during the last Ice Age than scientists previously thought, Reuters reported. Researchers from the University of Otago examined the genetic code of modern-day bull kelp from samples taken from many sub-Antarctic islands, as well as New Zealand and Chile. They found that southern bull kelp, Durvillaea antarctica, had only...

By Paul David Lampe, The Oakland Tribune, Calif. Jul. 8--It's brittle, slimy, green and invading Alameda's Bay Farm Island shoreline. It's not "Swamp Thing," but it's not supposed to be in Bay's water. It's the non-native alga known as Ascophyllum nodosum. "It's just nasty," said Betsy Wells, a UC Davis graduate student studying Predation Dynamics of Invasive Invertebrates in the San Francisco Bay. Monday morning, Wells along with 10 volunteers -- federal, state and university...

Queen's University Belfast is appealing for help from the public in looking at ways to detect and stop the spread of marine aliens.Activities such as aquaculture, shipping and recreational boating have led to an army of marine alien species hitchhiking around the globe. Now Queen's is attempting to find out exactly where and how non-native species get a foothold in a new area. To do this it is asking for help from the public to record what they have seen.Part of the Marine Aliens consortium,...

Sargassum seaweed, famous in nautical lore for entangling ships in its dense floating vegetation, has been detected from space for the first time thanks to an instrument aboard ESA's environmental satellite, Envisat. The ability to monitor Sargassum globally will allow researchers to understand better the primary productivity of the ocean and better predict climate change. Using optical radiance data from the Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) aboard Envisat, Dr Jim Gower and...
