What can possibly be unkosher about seaweed, you ask?
It is common for Sea horses to give birth in or next to seaweed, a safe place for them to hang out and enjoy a snack. Well, safe up until they get eaten unintentionally as a side dish by seaweed-eating swimming animals, including crab, shrimp, turtle, puff fish, starfish, betta fish, krill, lobster, and eel.
If these animals don’t get to it first, we humans will eventually pick and process it for consumption.
