What one finds edible is very dependent on how hungry you are, and what is "normal" for your culture. My mom taught English in China for five years. Some observations she made were very educational for me.
Though where she was bordered a jungle. she never heard birds. I assume they had all been consumed. She asked, at the restaurant she was eating, if there was any dog or cat in what she was eating. The reply was "Oh no! You pay more for that".
As a Chinese friend of mine told me, if it has it's back to the sun, it is food, (worms are out). He described finding a nest of baby mice when he was a little boy. "Like popcorn", he said.

Good info. I'm just saying seaweed isn't much like what we normally think of as algae - the seaweed is more palatable.

Excellent! I learned something today.

I think the point of algae and 3D printing is to use a bulk food source which is easy to produce and has little form of its own - and is not appetizing by itself - to produce a variety of different things to each, just as wheat flour is used to make various pasta and baked goods.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
