What is Alaria?
Alaria is a seaweed that is widely used in cooking. In length, it can reach forty-five meters. It has a hollow stem that allows it to float on water. The thickets of alaria are very dense. Few of the marine life live in these thickets.
Alaria is a plant that belongs to the genus of kelp and grows in the waters of the Pacific, Atlantic Ocean and even in the cold seas of the Northern Hemisphere. The largest massifs of thickets of these algae are located near the Kuril, Commander, Aleutian Islands, along the Pacific coast of Alaska. Some types of alaria are eaten. The light green, almost transparent alaria is used in soups, salads and casseroles.
