You, like so many others see seaweeds as Coastal plants not Marine plants. A pity for Marine tag spotters www.ispot.org.uk/taxonomy/term/376

coastal or marine

Ok tx. I've changed it to marine. I guess I viewed marine as sub tidal, intertidal as coastal. Many of my seashore obos are down as coastal.
