    Comment A large and sturdy brown seaweed, one of the most common 'kelps'. Extensive 'forests' of it, usually partly exposed at low tide, are found around the coast of Scotland, providing a highly diverse habitat for crustaceans, molluscs, fish, seals and other seaweeds. It is a traditional coastal food, a very rich source of natural vitamins and minerals, including essential trace minerals, and a traditional animal feed and fertilizer. It is common on all coasts of Britain and Ireland except for the east and south-east coast of England, otherwise distributed from Iceland and N Russia south to Brittany. In the western Atlantic from the NE coast of Greenland south to Cape Cod and, although less common, to Long Island. (source: - 16/11/2007)
