  • Edible marine life books ?

    Is there a good book that tells you what's edible in the oceans up here as far as plant life and other strange creatures found on the beach or brought up from the depths ? I never did pick up the book Marine Life of the Pacific Northwest does it have what's edible in this book.

    Thanks

    There is a little book called, "Edible? Incredible!" by Marjorie Furlong & Virginia Pill. The last one I got was ordered from Amazon and I just checked and they are still available. Pretty inexpensive too.

      Have a look at "Edible? Incredible!" on Amazon. It covers some of the stranger stuff like sea cucumber.

          awww...now this post makes too much sense. I was wondering what kinda book you could eat.

          I was thinking about picking this book up. http://www.amazon.com/Coastal-Fishes.../dp/0920080758

          He has another book that is out of print I use. Maybe used bookstore has it. It has other critters too. Here's the cover.

                You stole my joke....

                A quick tip is if it's seaweed, it's edible. It may not taste good, and it might do interesting things to your bowels, but it's edible. All seaweed is.

                    Uh...yeah. There are certain things your average joe can't eat (ok, by eat I mean "kill"). Natives are often exempted from this. Not complaining, just explaining so someone doesn't go out and start whacking seals....

                    There are these little low-lying green bushy things along beaches that are kind of pine smelling and go amazing chopped up on salmon....I'll see if I can find a link for them, cause they are everywhere and quite tasty.

                    Ah, here we go. Beach Lovage:

                    It grows in clumps, and you just strip the leaves off. Eat them however, but they complement salmon well.

                      Well.... hopefully you folks know we have a bookstore here, too? :-))

                      Common Edible Seaweeds in the Gulf of Alaska, by Dolly Garza

                      Wild Edible and Poisonous Plants of Alaska, by Dr. Christine A.H.

                      And here's one on traditional Alaska native means and methods regarding edible and medicinal plants:

                      Plants that we Eat, by Anore Jones

                      There are more in the store... and I will take a look at the ones mentioned to see if we should add them too. Any more ideas out there?
