Pembrokeshire Beach Food Company present "Mother of the Sea Day" at Café Môr for Welsh Year of Legends

In keeping with this year’s theme for Wales, ‘The Year of Legends’ The Pembrokeshire Beach Food Company will be celebrating an inspiring woman who spent time studying seaweed in Wales. On the afternoon of Friday 14th April, it is ‘Mother of the Sea Day’ at Café Môr, Freshwater West.

In the early 1900’s the Japanese, known for their love of seaweed, were facing a crisis. Poor seaweed harvests year after year and little knowledge of what was causing the dwindling growth of their beloved sushi seaweed, ‘nori’, meant that they were facing losing seaweed from their diet.
