‘Plants from the Sea’

  • Ole G. Mouritsen


Seaweed are algae that are found in all climate zones all around the world. The smallest algae are unicellular and some are related to bacteria and fungi. The largest are multicellular seaweeds that are several meters long. Most algae are able to photosynthesize, but they are not real plants. Seaweed is a neglected nutritional source in the Western world, but is fundamental in Japanese cuisine, especially in sushi.
