I have only had seaweed in Chinese, Korean and Japanese food and cannot remember seeing it here in the market or supermarkets. Do you know, if I can just collect some on the rocks or beach, or is some of it terribly poisonous? Also, does it have to be treated before eating like snails and the like must be?

The seaweed used in Wales and Ireland is Porphyra umbilicalis. It has to be boiled for several hours.

I see no intelligent reasoning why seaweed and bread should ever be even remotely synonymous.

None.

Chinese fried seaweed is actually deep fried shredded Savoy cabbage / cabbage or spring greens. Korean and Japanese seaweed dishes are made with the same variety of real seaweed the Welsh use.
