Cornwall man licensed to sell Lizard seaweed

Fantastic fish, corking crab and awesome oysters sourced locally are something visitors dining out in Cornwall have become used to for centuries.

But a new local delicacy from the seas of Falmouth will soon be available to try out after a man was granted the first license in England to harvest and sell seaweed to eat.

It won’t be the washed up, sandy specimen on the market however, with Rory MacPhee plucking the finest ‘sea vegetables’ from below the water mark around the Lizard coastline.

Mr MacPhee described it as a ‘tremendously exciting development’ for Cornwall, claiming it could become a vibrant and burgeoning industry.

Seaweed is said to be extremely tasty and many of the top chefs across the UK are using it in their dishes. Why not try some out if you get the opportunity whilst eating out at one of the fabulous Cornwall eateries on your vacation to one of the region’s sensational 5 star cottages in Cornwall?
