    Such a different perspective! I have a greater appreciate for our ocean's forests and their value as habitat, food, and as part of the biome we all live in. ...

    This is a book that cries out for illustration, photos or line drawings. I spent lots of time on my tablet looking for images of the various types of seaweed mentioned. Otherwise, an interesting book alerting the reader to the seaweed battles between unregulated harvesters,big business...
