Seaweeds

Identifying seaweeds in the wild isn’t always easy. It’s often not easy. Even with field guides and online resources, there are plenty of common seaweeds that are tricky for non-experts like me. Still, I can’t resist trying. I’ve done my best in the pages that follow to show some useful, interesting, and I hope pleasing, photos of the most obvious intertidal seaweeds I’ve noticed on Pacific northwest shores. Most are from the exposed surf-swept outer coast. If I’m not sure about species, or even genus, I’ll mention it. If you see a mistake, which is surely possible, I hope you’ll let me know. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy surfing my seaweed samples.
