I disagree totally. Picking up dry black seaweed on the beach is a waste of time. You'll get some nutrients but a lot less than the green stuff.

well as you live in ireland and sea weed was a main source of fertiliser over there and also in the poorer parts  like cornwall and the west coast in this country id thought you may have agreed . seeing as most of  it is full of iodine etc .i would welcome the test that shows it contains less nutrients than being fresh ,having eaten varios types of seaweed in my training in survival skillls i can attest to them tasting yuck except the green lettuce types which just taste salty . its collected worldwide for  its health properties in the iodine part also it is used as agar .and then as a fertilisers in mainly the dairy farm areas . its value to the folks who grew potato's was massive being layed on the soil in the late autmn and left over winter .  and the colour of it is no reason to not pick it as far as i can see in its uses for the plot , we pick bladder wrack up here and its dried and then broken up and spread on allotments and gardens , but if you know something i dont matey im interested in knowing ,  :wink:  :D
