Hi Ari -- interesting column on edible seaweed. But I have to disagree with the statement 'Nobody is displaced by seaweed farming.'
Even wikipedia has a discussion of the negative impacts of seaweed farming.
and those shallow coastal areas where seaweed is farmed was important habitat for many marine species.
All kinds of farming displaces something. And as population grows, any sort of farming can get big enough to be a problem. Vicki Watson
