Happy new year Norman
I’ve never eaten kelp or heard of it being eaten actually...
There are massive kelp beds... quite eerie as they wave up from the deep with the tides. Would be easy to harvest some.
Many clams to be had at low tide but I’m not a fan.
I guess one could almost live off the land here easier than most places..
While it’s currently more rain than most old folks remember, there is always enough rain that with catchment, fresh water wouldn’t be an issue either.

OI googled Kelp as food. I knew it was eatable, but this was interesting

Nutrients: Sea kelp is a natural source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E, as well as minerals including zinc, iodine, magnesium, iron, potassium, copper and calcium. In fact it contains the highest natural concentration of calcium of any food - 10 times more than milk.
