Can you grow, harvest and eat seaweed from a tank at home?

I'm interested in a science experiment/art project that would involve growing seaweed in a salt water tank at home, then harvesting and eating it. Is this possible? Dangerous? Any advice or leads would be appreciated.


Thanks,

Neil

Hi Neil :-)
Yes you can grow seaweed in a tank at home and eat it. It is being done allready. Get hold on spores of f.ex. Dulse, make sure there is enough nutrion for the seaweed and make sure there is a lot of movement im the water all the time. Then of course sunlight is needed. Barbara Stephens Lewallen from Mendocino Seavegetable company will maybe tell you more about it if you contact her. She has a relative who has done it ;-)
