this makes sense to me.  i couldn't ever stand nori because it tasted and smelled like dead fish.  maybe the truly vegan seaweed wouldn't taste fishy, and would be interesting.  
sometimes i even think seasalt tastes a little fishy, but maybe i'm over-sensitive since i never liked fish even as a non-vegan kid.

i have no new info, just writing.

from what i understand this is true of many crops that are harvested using heavy machinery such as wheat. not just insects but small animals get ground up in the process.

mmmmmmmmmm.  what a lovely thought--so we really could be eating "lips & assholes" when we eat vegan hot dogs?  man, i've always enjoyed calling the meat-dogs that, but i shudder to think that my smart dogs may have ground-up hedgehog bits in them.  i guess that's one more reason to cook from scratch & not buy mass-produced, highly processed foods.  that SUCKS about nori though--i really really like it!

I've heard of nori farms, where they grow it in underwater tanks. Perhaps varieties grown in this way would be sea-creature free?

I'm not sure which companies USE them, though...

This thought has crossed my mind regarding spirulina. I'm going to call some of the companies and find out where it all comes from.
I would like to think that it is grown in tanks, but I suspect otherwise.
I'd really like to up my intake of spirulina, but if I found out that it was collected in nets, this would have me reconsider .... for a thought or two.

You can't be too fanatical( "picky" ? ) all of the time . ( or can you ? )

I'd never heard of nori before. I just googled it.
Looks like we are talking about the same stuff right ?

I've that some companies use ponds specifically designed for spirulina, not sure what the percentage is though.
