A flavour of the book

Guide to Edible Seaweeds – the perfect shore companion

*Guide now in 3rd Edition – With 5 additional seaweeds

Learn how to identify and sustainably harvest seaweeds with Guide to edible seaweeds.

The Guide to Edible Irish Seaweeds comes as a pocket-sized, splash proof, laminated booklet, designed to survive even the closest encounters with sea and weather.

A very clever feature of the guide is the QR codes included on each seaweed page. When scanned by a smartphone each QR code will bring you to a video description presented by Prannie. You can view Prannie’s video on Duileasc above.

You can find out more on the guide page. Also, make sure to watch Prannie’s interview outlining the benefits of the guide on Country Matters below:
