Can a person learn to love seaweed? It’s a major feature of Monterey Bay, and we just added great examples to our Touch Pools, including dead man’s fingers (Codium sp.), ribbed kelp (Castoria sp.) and even beautiful sea palm (Postelsia sp.), which we collect in very limited amounts with special permission of the California Department of Fish and Game!
