My guess would be that it would do great in cold water like the lobster..
I have gone to Maine most of my life and have tried [like a rookie ] to keep things from the ocean there....Not happening without a chiller IMO..
You could try some and see if it degrades? The fish may also enjoy eating it so you could always freeze it for them?

I'll have to see if the tangs like it if so Ill cut up some and freeze it
it's definitely a odd algae the pods are the size of golf balls leaves are big too

must have enough to fill a black leaf bag I've been keeping it all moist with cold saltwater .
lobsters are liking the cold dripping water they seem to be moving around more , wow dropped piece of kelp in tank vlamingi tang is going to town on it. looks like Ill be freezing a bunch ,

I'd say it'd probably be good tang food, but lobsters are normally cold water inverts where a vast majority of our hobby systems aren't cold water enviroments.

the lobsters are xmas dinner I had a crate of them shipped in from Maine the most expensive xmas dinner yet ,

they came with tons of kelp figured if I could use some of it rather than just throw away why not.

just can't let the saltwater crew see me eating one or two of their buddy's.

oh and the lobster in my tank is a purple lobster he's been in there close to 3 years now he is the one I was going to stuff a piece of kelp into the rocks for . he eats about anything

oh couldn't resist I broke down gave trig my trigger a chunk of lobster , he ate it up fast didn't want to share with the wrasses.
oh trust me its hard avoiding tanks while eating they just sit and stare till they get theirs.
