seaweed with tuna flavor

Thanks for being there, and for your offering help. I appreciate it.
I've read several recipes for making what might be called mock-tuna salad. Most of them involve (I give the general ingredients because it tells what flavors are already involved, if that will be of any help) -mashed garbanzo beans, mayonnaise, relish, celery, sometimes a little bit of lemon juice, and a few other minor ingredients.
But in order for it to have a somewhat fishy, more like-tuna flavor, the recipes recommend a little seaweed, granulated or in flake form. All the ingredients are just mixed together, -very simple.
But what I would like to know is, which seaweed, kelp, or sea lettuce might be best in order to not only add a somewhat 'fishy' flavor, but give a flavor that's closest to tuna, if such a thing is possible. If no 'tuna-like' additional flavor is possible, then the closest to that would be fine. Thank you for your help.
Sincerely, a person who is vegetarian, but who misses eating tuna fish sandwiches!
