Seaweed Helps Bring Food Security To Latin America

Zulema Muñoz collects seaweed in a small coastal town 100 miles south of Santiago, Chile. A photo published by Inter Press Service shows her emerging from the water with a green bag tied at her waist, two large seaweed plants trailing behind her like Medusa’s mane. A good week may see her cut 1,100 pounds of seaweed from the rocks where it grows, IPS reported.
