Turkish Towel (Chondracanthus exasperatus)

This evening I went for a walk around the beach at Totem Park. Bird-wise, I found the usual suspects that have been around recently, Surfbirds, Black Turnstones, and quite a few gulls.

It’s always interesting to see the seaweed that gets pushed up the beach after outgrowing the anchor’s ability to hold them down. They do break down pretty quickly, but sometimes you can find fresh blades.

    I would like to find more information about Chondracanthus exasperatus– Turks Towel. I use it for bathing and find it to be exceptional, leaving the skin moist and soft. I am looking for the chemistry of this seaweed. Perhaps you know something about it?

    Hello – sorry I don’t know anything about the chemistry of the seaweed. It’s just one I find washed ashore around here quite often.
