Possible and obvious ocean pollutants?

I just love your site and have been picking red seaweed off rock, in May, for several years. This was in the near pristine waters of Alert Bay.
I moved to the Nanaimo area last summer and am concerned about harvesting seaweeds with the all the cars, ferries, pleasure boat traffic and the Harmac pulp mill.
How can I find out where, in this part of the Island, I could harvest or will I need to drive for harvesting safely?
